The DC Department of Public Works will collect leaves twice this season, on the following schedule for Glover Park:
We are Ward 3, Area "D":
Cycle 1: rake leaves by November 22nd, for collection November 23rd-28th
Cycle 2: rake leaves by December 20th for collection December 21st-26th
Rake leaves into the treebox area between the street and sidewalk. DPW will rake leaves into the street just prior to vacuuming.
You may leave loose leaves, or bag in paper bags.
Do not rake leaves into the street, as it causes a hazard for cars and pedestrians, and can clog gutters.
Remove sticks, rocks, dirt, trash and other debris which may damage vacuuming equipment.
Bagged leaves may also be discarded in regular trash, but will not be composted.
