Fall Bulk Leaf Collection to Begin on Monday, October 25, 2010

Non-bagged leaves will be collected curbside until the week of December 27, 2010.

From the Town of Leesburg, VA – The Town of Leesburg’s Public Works Department will begin its annual fall bulk leaf collection schedule on Monday, October 25, 2010.  Crews will collect non-bagged leaves placed at the curb in all quadrants of the Town throughout the leaf season. 

Residents are asked to follow these guidelines:

  • Please rake leaves not more than four feet from the edge of the curb by Sunday evening of each collection week.
  • 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 storm drain inlets.
  • 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.

Leaves will be collected from each quadrant of the Town at least once a week.  The day of the week that leaves will be collected in a particular neighborhood may vary through the leaf season.

Final leaf pickup for the season is scheduled for the week of December 27 through December 30, 2010.  Inclement weather (heavy rain or snow) may extend the collection period.  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 pickup on normal recycling collection days.
