Leaf collection starts this month around Alexandria

The leaves are turning around Alexandria, which for those in the city with yards means it’s leaf collection season.

“The City of Alexandria will begin its annual leaf vacuuming and leaf bag collection program on Monday, October 31,” the city said in a release. “Leaf collection is expected to continue into January.”

The city is divided into five zones, each of which has it’s own start date with three “passes” from city leaf collection.

According to the release:

Residents who receive City trash and recycling collection services may recycle leaves in three ways:

  • Raking leaves to the curb for vacuum collection
  • Placing leaves in paper leaf bags for collection (leaves in plastic bags are considered refuse, and are thrown away as trash)
  • Composting 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.

According to the city website, the first pass of leaf collection is as follows:

  • Zone 1: Monday, November 14
  • Zone 2: Monday, October 31
  • Zone 3: Thursday, November 3
  • Zone 4: Wednesday, November 9
  • Zone 5A: Monday, October 31
  • Zone 5B: Friday, November 4
  • Zone 5C: Thursday, November 10
  • Zone 5D: Tuesday, November 15
