TOL PR 2016-10-11 fall bulk leaf collection Town of Leesburg News Release For Immediate Release Media Contact: Betsy Arnett, Public Information Officer barnett@leesburgva.gov  703-771-2734 Leesburg Begins Fall Curbside Bulk Leaf Collection on Monday, October 24, 2016 Prior to October 24, 2016, residents should bag leaves for pickup on regular recycling collection days. Leesburg, VA (October 11, 2016) – Autumn is here and the leaves are falling. Leesburg’s annual fall bulk leaf collection will start on Monday, October 24, 2016. Prior to October 24, 2016, residents should place leaves in covered trash cans with handles or biodegradable paper bags for pickup on their normal recycling collection days (Thursdays in the southeast and southwest quadrants; Fridays in the northeast and northwest quadrants). Once curbside bulk leaf collection begins, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:  Do not rake leaves in front of or into storm drain.  Please rake leaves not more than four feet from the edge of the curb by Sunday evening.  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 or around fire hydrants or utility boxes.  Do not mix grass clippings, yard waste or other brush items with the leaves. Throughout leaf collection season, there will be a crew working in each quadrant at least four days a week. There is not a set schedule to collect leaves on specific days for any particular street or neighborhood within a quadrant, but the goal is to collect leaves from every street once a week. Inclement weather or a heavy fall of leaves may delay collection. Final leaf pickup for the season will be on Friday, December 30, 2016. 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. # # #
