fall tree planting

The DoE Sprout, October 22


Thank you to the Sustainability Division team, including drainage investigators who have continued to investigate, assess and advise residents on the source of drainage problems and means to cure such problems.  Our investigators have been consistently responding to requests for assistance with yard and house flooding during the pandemic.  Despite an exceptionally rainy summer in 2020, staff have maintained timely responses to residents’ requests for help with determining the source of drainage problems and for advice on how to protect their homes and yards from flooding.

Pumpkin Composting

It’s that time of year again! Compost your bio-degradable decorations like pumpkins, dried corn, hay and straw with your curbside organic collections on Mondays in November.


Go green this Halloween and compost your pumpkin.

The Prince George’s County Department of the Environment (DoE)is pleased to announce that it will collect pumpkins for composting on Monday, November 4, 11, 18 and 25, 2019. In addition to pumpkins, dried corn, hay and straw will also be picked-up for composting along with yard trim.

Pumpkins are not required to be bagged, but paper lawn/leaf bags must be used if residents choose to bag their items for collection. Pumpkins should be free of inorganic materials such as candles, wax, artificial lighting, loose decorations, etc.

Residents may also drop off pumpkins and other yard trim at the County’s Public Convenience Centers
