Leaf Collection Scheduled to Resume Monday, February 14th

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The City of Charlottesville will restart residential curbside collection of leaves on Monday, February 14th and will conclude on Friday, March 11th.  Each neighborhood will be visited by vacuum trucks on a set schedule.

All collection zones will receive one loose leaf pickup service, including the normally designated "Weekly Routes," as part of this service restart effort.

Revised Collection Dates By Zone:

  • Zone A: February 14th - February 18th
  • Zone B: February 21st - February 25th
  • Zone C: February 28th - February 25th
  • Zone D: March 7th - March 11th

*Please note the text-alert reminder service will not reflect these new revised dates.

Drop-off Location:

For residents who opt not to use the curbside loose leaf collection service, a leaf drop-off location will continue to be available on Saturdays, 8am-1pm, through March 5th. The drop-off location is: 1505 Avon Street Extended, Charlottesville, VA 22902.

Where to Rake Leaves for Collection:

Loose leaves will be collected at the curbside. Residents should pile un-bagged leaves as close to the curbside/street as possible without blocking the travel-way for pedestrians, bicycles, or motor vehicles. On-street parking areas can be used for leaves. Four examples of where to pile leaves are shown below:
