Leaf Collection - West Side

  • Date: -

Loose leaves will only be collected during this time period. Leaf vacuums and other specialized equipment must be removed from trucks in order to prepare the vehicles for snow removal.

Bagged leaves will be collected as time permits until Feb. 1 each year. Please call 540-961-1142 to inform the Public Works Department of your address and number of bags. Any bagged leaves remaining after Feb. 1 will only be collected during Spring and Fall Cleanup.

Guidelines

  • Place leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week. Leaves may be bagged or piled. 
  • Remove all sticks and yard debris from piles and bags. Only leaves will be collected. Contaminated piles or bags of leaves will not be collected. 
  • To prevent loose leaves from blowing, cover piles with old sheets, blankets, or tarps weighted with stones or bricks. 
  • Leaf piles must not impede traffic. 
  • Leaf collection is for residential refuse and recycling customers only. 
  • Town crews will not collect leaves on private roads, private property, or in parking lots. Place leaf piles on the edge of the nearest public street.
