City of Richmond upgrades leaf collection program

Richmond, Va. (WRIC) — Richmond’s leaf collection program will include neighborhood leaf clean-ups and biodegradable bag give-aways this year.

Vacuum collection zones are also being divided into sub-zones with their own collection dates to better streamline the process. Find those specific dates here.

When the vacuum collection date approaches for your subzone, rake your leaves to the edge of your property line next to the street, but do not put them in the street or culvert. The city also asks that residents remove dirt, rocks and other debris from the piles for them to be collected.
