Bagged leaf drop-off will be offered citywide, on Saturdays only starting November 19, 2016 at these 23 locations from 9 AM to 3 PM (with the exception of the Saturday following Thanksgiving). The closest location to Queen Village is at Broad and Christian.
A designated fleet of sanitation compactors will be at each locations around the City to accept bagged leaves. These crews will be assigned to accept ONLY bagged leaves and yard waste for the duration of the program. No household rubbish will be accepted with the bagged leaves and yard waste for drop-off.
Follow these tips for bagged leaf collection:
- Residents must place leaves in large brown biodegradable paper bags. Using these bags helps eliminate the extensive process of ripping open, dumping, and disposing of plastic bags. By using these biodegradable bags, you will help crews work more efficiently. Bags containing materials other than yard waste will be refused for drop-off at the leaf collection drop-off point.
- Never mix trash or other recyclable materials with bagged leaves. This contaminates leaves and makes them unfit for recycling purposes.
