La Plata announces loose leaf pick-up schedule

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.

October 21, 2019 – October 25, 2019, and November 12, 2019 – November 15, 2019: St. Mary’s Avenue, Oak Avenue, Kent Ave, Washington Avenue, Charles Street, Hickory Ridge, and adjacent side streets.

October 28, 2019 – November 1, 2019, and November 18, 2019 – November 22, 2019: Clarks Run.

December 2, 2019 – December 20, 2019: Final pickup of the entire Town.

There will be no pick-up on Monday, November 11, 2019, or the week of November 25, 2019.

There will be no loose-leaf pickup after December 20, 2019, all leaves must be bagged after this date.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
