Local Homeowners Enter Last Few Weeks for Leaf Pickup in Alexandria

(Updated 8:10 a.m. on 12/15/20) If you’re an Alexandria homeowner and put off raking: you’re entering the last stretch to get that yard cleaned up.

This week, Transportation and Environmental Services let locals know the city is entering the last phase of leaf clearing.

Leaf clearing started in early November. Residents are encouraged to collect leaves in biodegradable bags for collection or rake the leaves to the curb the day before their neighborhood is scheduled to be cleaned.

“Free leaf bags for residents who receive City trash services are available at City Hall, recreation centers, and the City’s self-serve shed on Business Center Drive,” the city said. “You can also use your own paper leaf bags for collection!”
