WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) — The City of Williamsburg is offering its residents curbside leaf collection from November to January on select weeks.

Leaf collection will be divided into a red route and a blue route. Leaves will be collected on both routes for five weeks. Collection starts Monday, Nov. 6 for those on the red route and collection begins on the following Monday, Nov. 13 for the blue route. Pick-ups are scheduled to happen every other week.

These guidelines also apply:

  • Do not mix sticks or limbs into your leaf pile.
  • In case of rain, crews will pick up on the route where they left off prior to the rain.
  • Place leaf piles in an open area for easy vacuum truck access. Leaf piles behind vehicles, trees, or bushes cannot be picked up.
  • Bagged leaves can be placed curbside to be collected with garbage on any garbage collection day. There is a 10 bag limit per household per collection day.
