Leesburg Begins Fall Curbside Bulk Leaf Collection on Monday, October 15, 2018

Post Date:09/21/2018 1:48 PM
Leesburg, VA (September 21, 2018) – Leesburg’s annual fall bulk leaf collection will start on Monday, October 15, 2018. Residents are asked to follow these guidelines for the collection of fall leaves:

• Do not rake leaves in front of or into storm drain.
• Please rake leaves not more than four feet from the edge of the curb by Sunday evening.
• On streets without curb and gutter, place leaves as close as possible to the front property line, closest to the street.
• Do not park vehicles or place equipment or toys in or around the leaves.
• Do not rake leaves in front of or around fire hydrants or utility boxes.
• Do not mix grass clippings, yard waste or other brush items with the leaves. Yard waste should be placed in brown paper yard waste bags or in containers with "yard waste" stickers and placed out for collection on Mondays.

There is not a set schedule to collect leaves on specific days for any particular street or neighborhood within a quadrant, but the goal is to collect leaves from every street once a week. Inclement weather or a heavy fall of leaves may delay collection. 

Final leaf pickup for the season will be on Friday, December 28, 2018.  Once fall bulk leaf collection has ended, all leaves must be set out in covered trash cans with handles or biodegradable paper yard waste bags for collection. Leaves in plastic bags will be collected as trash.
