Dover loose-leaf collection to begin in mid-October

Posted

DOVER – With the autumn season having arrived, the city of Dover announced that curbside loose-leaf collection will take place from Oct. 17 through Jan. 16.

For most areas, leaves in the street will be collected the day after a resident’s normal trash pickup day. Those areas with trash pickup on Friday will have their leaves picked up the following Monday.

Areas where street sweeping occurs overnight will have their leaves collected on the street sweeping schedule.

After Jan. 16, 2023, regular yard waste collection rules apply. All leaves must be placed in privately owned 35 gallon or less plastic yard waste containers.

Yard waste containers are picked up on the regular weekly collection schedule. Only loose leaves/yard waste material can be placed inside the containers. No plastic or paper bags can be used.

Any questions concerning the leaf collection should be directed to Dover’s Department of Public Works at 302-736-7025.
