CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Charlottesville City Council is discussing a potential change that would end its practice of collecting bagged leaves.

The city says the bags create an excess amount of waste and by eliminating them, it would save more than $80,000 annually in operational costs. People who live in the city could still have their leaves collected by raking them to the curb for loose-leaf collection by the city's vacuum trucks.

City Council is expected to make a decision at its next meeting.
