Leesburg, VA (February 7, 2020) – In the wake of this morning’s severe windstorm, the Town of Leesburg has waived volume limits and size restrictions on brush collection for one week to assist residents with storm debris clean up.

Through Friday, February 14, 2020, Leesburg residents can place any amount of brush at the curb for collection. Trash or other debris, like roof shingles or siding, will not be collected with brush.

Town crews will begin collecting storm-related brush on Saturday, February 8, 2020. Branches and limbs that are between 4 and 8 feet in length and less than 8 inches in diameter will be collected using chipping equipment. Larger items, including root balls, will be collected separately. 

All brush items must be placed at the curb. Town crews cannot enter private property to collect storm debris. If contractors are hired to remove downed trees, the contractors are responsible for all debris removal.  

Residents with questions about what can and cannot be collected should contact the Street Maintenance Division at 703-737-7073 or streets@leesburgva.gov.
