Animal Control 
Kentlands is home to many creatures, including but not limited to, reptiles, birds, and many mammals including fox, deer, rabbit, etc. Should you have any concerns about wildlife, please contact Animal Control directly at 301-258-6343.
Recycling & Bulk Pick Up
The City contracts with a private hauler for the collection of newspapers, mixed paper, corrugated cardboard, commingled cans, glass containers and plastic bottles. The recycling contractor also collects brush, branches, grass clippings, leaves and other yard trimmings. 
Street Lighting
The City’s street lighting program is designed to provide well-lighted streets throughout the communities, thereby increasing pedestrian and vehicular safety, suppressing crime and increasing street capacities.  To report an outage or concern on the city lights please contract Public works directly at 301-258-6370.
During a snow event, snow crews concentrate on keeping City streets passable during winter weather events.  Streets are cleared as soon as possible after the storm is over.  Residents and business owners in Gaithersburg are required to remove snow and ice from the public sidewalks abutting their property within 12 hours of the last precipitation. The community can help the snow crews to provide the most efficient winter weather services by being informed.  If you have a comment or concern during or immediately following a storm, please contact Public Works directly at or call 240-805-1345.
