The City is separated into the east and west sections with leaf trucks assigned to each section on alternating weeks. In the heavily forested areas a specific truck is assigned for leaf collection.
The City of Harrisonburg Public Works Department will be starting the annual curbside leaf collection on November 5, 2012.
Leaves are vacuumed up Monday – Friday for six weeks excluding Veterans Day and Thanksgiving holidays. Leaf collection continues for six weeks with the following schedule, weather permitting:
|West Side of Main St. & Forest Hills
||East Side of Main St. & Fairway Drive|
November 19-23 (excluding holidays)
November 12-16 (excluding holiday)
*During the above dates, streets will be done only once.
Guidelines for collection:
Before and after these dates, place your leaves in a biodegradable bag or 35 gallon container with no liner for assigned Wednesday pickup. (See Yard Debris and Bulk collection.) Once the annual collection is complete, there will be no limit on contained leaves that are set out for Wednesday pickup through December 31, 2012. Leaves not properly placed for pickup will be subject to a violation fee.
