Bulk Leaf Collection Resumes October 15, 2019

leavesLeesburg, VA (September 30, 2019) – Leesburg’s annual fall bulk leaf collection will start on Tuesday, October 15. Residents are asked to follow these guidelines for the collection of fall leaves:

• Do not rake leaves in front of or into storm drains.
• 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 every 5 to 10 business days. Inclement weather or a heavy fall of leaves may delay collection; refer to the Town website for more information and schedule updates.

Final leaf pickup for the season will be on Monday, December 30 and will include leaf piles placed at the curb no later than 7 a.m. that day. After this date, leaves must be set out in yard waste cans with handles or biodegradable paper yard waste bags. Leaves in plastic bags will be collected as trash.
