Neighborhood Leaf Clean-Up Program Scheduled

Throughout December and January the Department of Public Works will host Neighborhood Leaf Clean-up events from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in neighborhoods that traditionally have a high volume of leaves. All types of bags will be collected, not just biodegradable. The bags will be picked up rain or shine and must be ready for removal when City trucks arrive. As many as 50 bags per household will be removed during each Neighborhood Leaf Clean-Up.

The dates and locations are:
  • December 3:  Stony Point | Woodland Heights | Windsor Farms
  • December 10:  Westover Hills | Forest Hill Terrace
  • December 17:  Worthington Farms | Woodhaven
  • January 7:  Bellevue | Laburnum Park 
  • January 14:  Ginter Park | Washington Park
Throughout the year the Department of Public Works will collect up to six bags of leaves per household during weekly solid waste collection.  During the Vacuum Leaf Collection Program, residents can dispose of up to 20 bags of leaves when their sub-zone receives vacuum service.  City residents may also dispose of leaves by taking them to these locations:
  • East Richmond Road Convenience Center, 3800 East Richmond Road, Richmond, VA 23223
  • Maury Street Landfill, 2900 Maury St., Richmond, VA 23224
Vacuum service may be cancelled and rescheduled during inclement weather.
