The Town of La Plata Public Works Department will be offering loose leaf collection from October 14, 2019, to December 20, 2019. The crews will be picking up per this schedule, so there will be no need to contact the Town Hall for pick-up service.

The Town would like to ask our residents to support our going green program by mulching your leaves and using it for fertilizer for your yards. For our residents who wish to bag their leaves, the pick-up will be on our yard waste schedule of Mondays and Fridays.

The loose-leaf pickup schedule will be as follows, but is subject to change at any time:

October 14, 2019 – October 18, 2019, and November 4, 2019 – November 8, 2019: Kings Grant, Agricopia, Quailwood, Port Tobacco Road, West Hawthorne Drive, and adjacent side streets.
