College Park clarifying yard waste collection policies

The city of College Park recently announced several initiatives, including clarifying proper yard waste collection instructions.

The city’s department of public works is producing a flyer offering instructions for proper disposal of items such as grass clippings and tree trimmings for weekly and bi-weekly collection, the city said. The flyers are going into monthly bills and the updates are also being broadcast on College Park TV-23.

In addition, College Park announced the following work:

  • Sewer mapping software. Staff members from information technology, engineering and public works are in the process of getting a new software package that will allow the city to store all relevant information about sewer location and plotting, called sewer mapping, into a secure database.

  • Track resurfacing. The Bill Badgett Stadium track has been resurfaced. During the $157,000 work, which the city paid for, Woodward Academy allowed the College Park Favor House Track Club to use its track as a temporary training facility.
