Set-Out Requirements

Vacuum leaf collection is intended to remove loose leaves that have fallen from deciduous trees in the fall. Do not mix other yard debris with leaves as it may damage equipment.

Residential streets are vacuumed from mid-October through mid-December each year. Each residential street is vacuumed at least 2 times. Collection schedules are changed and updated depending on the timing of the leaf drop, weather conditions, volume of leaves, and crew progress.
Rake loose leaves to the curb but avoid placing them in the street. Pile leaves away from storm drains and water meter covers. Keep all other collection material at least five feet away from leaf piles.

For more information, call Public Works at 703-248-5083 (TTY 711).

Bundled brush and yard waste bag collection continues throughout the leaf collection season on Wednesdays.
