WAYNESBORO PUBLIC WORKS CREWS TO BEGIN LEAF COLLECTION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WAYNESBORO PUBLIC WORKS CREWS TO BEGIN LEAF COLLECTION

The City of Waynesboro’s Public Works crews will begin leaf collection activities on November 2. During November, crews focus on neighborhoods with the greatest tree cover and densest foliage. Leaves throughout the entire City are collected during the month of December. Inclement weather and limited staffing can impede collection.

The City asks that residents rake leaves to the edge of the curb or street right-of-way. Please do not place leaves in the street, gutter or near storm drains. Rocks, sticks, brush and other objects must be kept out of leaf piles as they may be a hazard to pedestrians, can cause damage to city machinery and delay collection.

The City collects leaves in order to prevent storm drains clogging and to reduce nutrient loading to local streams and rivers. All leaves collected are used for composting. For more information please visit www.waynesboro.va.us or call (540) 942-6743.

Where can I get information on the pick up schedule?

Please check out our 2020 Leaf Collection Brochure for more detailed information.


Can I find more information on the website?

Yes. Please refer to the Public Works Page for more information about leaf collection activities.


What if I have additional questions?

Please call Public Works Operations at (540) 942-6743. You can also access the pre-recorded hotline for updates on the location of the crews at (540) 932-8240.
