Loose Leaf Collection

Special Fall Loose Leaf Collection

For residents only - No commercial pickups

Autumn is here and the leaves are beginning to fall.  The Denton Public Works Department is scheduling their annual loose-leaf vacuuming removal service to occur Monday October 16, 2023, through Friday December 15, 2023.  Leaves must be bagged for pickup the remaining months of the year.

Loose leaf vacuuming will occur on Friday and/or Monday, pending workload, and excluding holidays. (Weather permitting as we cannot vacuum frozen leaves). It will be necessary to call in your loose-leaf vacuum pickup request by 12 NOON on Thursday to guarantee pickup by Monday. We ask that you please only have one pile of leaves, and have it located at the edge of your property, without obstructing sidewalks or roadways, where it can easily be accessed by Public Works.

Bagged leaf collection will still take place on Wednesday and must be called in to the Town Office by 12 NOON on Tuesday.

Citizens are encouraged to call the Town Office at 410-479-2050 to request pickup. If calling after hours please leave the requests on the Town Office answering machine, ext. 1.


Please follow these guidelines for leaf removal:

  • Rake leaves to the curbside or alley.
  • DO NOT rake leaves into the street.
  • DO NOT rake leaves onto the sidewalk.
  • Make sure all sticks and limbs are removed from the pile of leaves.
  • Make sure there are no other objects or debris mixed with the leaves (like bottles, cans, flowerpots, gloves, ashes, pet waste or other trash)
  • Piles of leaves with sticks, limbs or other debris will not be picked up.
  • Phone in your pickup request to the Town Office at 410-479-2050 by Thursday to guarantee pickup by Monday.
  • All pickups will be done by request/appointment only.
  • Loose leaf pickups will occur from October 16, 2023, through December 15, 2023, on Mondays and Fridays only, except for holidays.  Leaves must be bagged any other time.
