The City of Cumberland is preparing for its annual leaf collection, which will begin on Monday, November 4th and conclude the week of December 16th. The Street Maintenance branch of the Public Works Department will be responsible for the leaf collection. Residents in the area scheduled for pickup during a particular week should rake their leaves the weekend prior to the collection. Leaves should be raked in piles to the edge of the sidewalk adjacent to the street, but not into the street, to avoid clogging the storm sewer collection basins. The City’s leaf collection machine will collect leaves only and is not intended to pick up branches and other yard debris. Residents are encouraged to park their vehicles in a manner that does not block access to the leaf piles.The City plans on collecting leaves on each street only once, so residents who do not have their leaves raked in the proper manner at the time of collection will have to dispose of them another way. Residents may also bag leaves and place them at the curb on their regular trash days. Burgmeier Hauling will collect up to 8 bags of trash per pickup, including leaves.
Further information regarding the collection program may be obtained by calling Street Maintenance at 301-759-6622 or 301-759-6639.
