City of Alexandria’s Leaf Collection Program Starts October 28
The City’s Department of Transportation & Environmental Services (T&ES), Solid Waste Division will begin leaf collection services on Monday, October 28 through Friday, December 27.
There are three ways to recycle leaves:
- Raking leaves to the curb for vacuum collection;
- Placing leaves in paper leaf bags for collection;
- Composting leaves and yard waste at home.
The City is divided into five zones, each with a specific collection start date. Each zone will receive three passes. Do not mix brush or other items with leaves, as these items may injure City crews, damage equipment or private property, or cause delays.
For more information on your leaf collection zone, your collection date or leaf bag locations, visit alexandriava.gov/LeafCollection or call T&ES’ leaf collection hotline at 703.746.5323.
Residents can stay informed about weekly progress and status updates for each of the City’s five zones by signing up online for the City’s Solid Waste eNews and on T&ES’ Facebook page.
