Leaf Collection Options

 Public Works will provide its fall 2016 leaf collection November 21 – December 22.  Leaves and other yard debris bagged in paper bags will be picked up on days opposite from Republic Services’ collection days. If you are in need of paper bags, you may purchase 30-gallon leaf bags at the Public Works building for $1 each. Additionally, Public Works will run a vacuum truck through each section to vacuum the ditch leaves that have been raked to the street. Yard leaves that have been raked to the street will not be picked up. These leaves must be placed in paper bags for collection.
YARD OPEN! Ocean Pines residents may also bring leaves and yard debris in bulk or paper bags to the Public Works yard, located at 1 Firehouse Lane, November 21 – December 22. The yard will be open 7:30 am – 3 pm Monday-Friday and 8 am – 3 pm Saturday. No contractor dumping or plastic bags will be permitted. There will be no collection or drop off on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 24 or Friday, November 25.
Residents with questions about leaf collection should contact Ocean Pines Public Works by calling 410-641-7425 or emailing Linda Martin at lmartin@oceanpines.org.
