Curbside Vacuum Leaf Collection Program 

The City of Bowie Curbside Vacuum Leaf Collection Program begins October 31 and runs through mid-December. Every single-family neighborhood will have two collections during that time.

Neighborhoods will be scheduled during a specific week and not on a specific date. You can view the 2022 schedule by clicking on one of the tabs below to see which two weeks your neighborhood will have leaf collection. The date listed IS NOT your scheduled collection date but the start of the week in which it will be collected. 

Due to limited availability of the equipment the city usually leases for this program, crews will be working longer hours on more days to get the job done. By assigning a pickup week rather than a pickup date, the crews can be more efficient with their time and will have more flexibility in how they move through the neighborhoods during each week.

Leaves should be raked to the curb (but not in the street), by 7 a.m. on Monday of your scheduled week. Each afternoon, the progress will be posted on the city website at www.cityofbowie.org/leaves. It will show each neighborhood scheduled for that week and whether it has been completed. Please note that once the truck passes through your street, they will not return to it again that week.

The Leaf Collection Program is a joint project of the Public Works Department and the Parks and Grounds Division of the Community Services Department. For more information about leaf collection, contact the Public Works Department at 301-809-2344.

Please note: If you prefer to bag your leaves, they will be picked up on Wednesdays with yard waste.  Use paper yard waste bags (no plastic bags).

When It's Your Pick Up Week 

Please follow the weekly schedule. Have your leaves raked to the curb by Monday at 7 a.m. on your scheduled weeks. The date listed IS NOT your scheduled collection date but the start of the week in which it will be collected. 

Check the daily status to see the progress throughout the week. Once they have completed your neighborhood, they will not be back that week.
