Spring Yard & Home Checklist

It is finally spring. Warmer days will eventually be here, so now is a good time to look around our homes to see what spring clean-up projects you might want to tackle. Below is a list of items to consider:

  • Walk around your home to see if there are leaves, broken branches, and twigs that need to be removed from your property. For information on Howard County’s curbside collection, click here.
  • If you have siding, a deck, and/or fencing, check to see if it is discolored and needs to be cleaned. Also, look at your sidewalk in front of your home to see if it requires cleaning.
  • As a reminder, all trash and recycling bins need to be stored out of sight. Inside your carport or garage is best, but a location on the side or rear of the home that provides minimal visibility is acceptable.
  • Bulk items (e.g. flower pots, tools, etc.) around the home need to be stored out of sight when not in use.
  • If you are considering a change to the exterior of your property, please make sure to check the Hickory Ridge Architectural Guidelines to see if the alteration requires approval. Visit the village website hickoryridgevillage.org or call the office at 410-730-7327 for more information about the application process.
  • Items that you no longer use or want, consider donating and reuse opportunities. Visit HowardCountyRecycles.org for more information.
  • Also, County bulk item curbside pick-up is available. You can schedule a pick-up by calling 410-313-6444 or clicking here.
