City of Alexandria Leaf Collection Begins October 30
For Immediate Release: October 16, 2017
The City of Alexandria will begin its annual leaf vacuuming and leaf bag collection program on Monday, October 30. Leaf collection is expected to continue through December.
The City is divided into five zones, each with a specific collection start date. Each zone will receive three passes. Residents who receive City trash and recycling collection may recycle leaves in three ways:
- Rake leaves to the curb for vacuum collection
- Place leaves in paper leaf bags for collection
- Compost leaves and yard waste at home
Please do not mix brush or other items with leaves, as these items may injure City workers, damage equipment or private property, or cause delays.
To determine specific collection zones and dates, and to find locations where complimentary leaf bags may be picked up, visit alexandriava.gov/LeafCollection or call the City’s leaf collection hotline at 703.746.5323 (LEAF).
Residents may also receive leaf collection status updates by signing up for the Alexandria eNews service and subscribing to “Resource Recovery Updates,” or by following the Department of Transportation & Environmental Services on Facebook and Twitter.
