Staunton: Get the 2019 Leaf Collection Schedule
10/09/2019 Release from Staunton:
OCTOBER 9, 2019 — The city will begin its leaf collection program Oct. 28 to assist residents with the removal of fallen leaves. The collection will continue through mid-January. Seven leaf pickup areas have been outlined on the map below (see bottom of page), and each zone will receive pickup twice during its assigned period.
Individual street schedules will not be provided. Leaf collection will be suspended on city holidays, including Nov. 28, Nov. 29, Dec. 24, Dec. 25, and Jan. 1.
How to Participate
To receive leaf collection at your residence, rake leaves to the curb or street right-of-way by the beginning of your scheduled collection weeks as shown on the map. Rocks, sticks, brush and other objects must be kept out of leaf piles as they can cause damage to city machinery and delay the program. The city will not attempt to collect leaf piles containing damaging items.
Residents should avoid pushing leaves into streets, gutters, drain pipes, and drop inlets so that water can flow without blockage.
What Happens to the Leaves After Collection?
The city will make compost with the leaves collected and also provide them to local farms for composting.
