Note: Town of Leesburg Announcement
Yard Waste Collection Begins Monday, March 30, 2020 (view message online)
Leesburg residents will have yard waste collected every Monday through December.
Leesburg, VA (March 27, 2020) – Beginning Monday, March 30, 2020, Patriot Disposal Services will begin to collect yard waste for those living within the corporate limits of the Town of Leesburg, every Monday.
Collection will begin a week early due to the high volume of yard waste. Please note, this service could be suspended, if needed, due to staffing of our haulers and Coronavirus updates. People should keep an eye on social media and the Town’s website, leesburgva.gov, in case we would have to suspend this service. Until then, a maximum of 10 bags (or 10 properly marked trash cans) will be picked up at each residents home per week. No exceptions.
Yard waste is limited to grass clippings, leaves, weeds and small twigs and must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on the day of collection, in biodegradable paper bags or in cans clearly marked as yard waste. The Town of Leesburg will provide residents with free “Yard Waste” stickers for this purpose. Residents can request stickers by calling 703-771-2790 or emailing [email protected].
Residents are being asked to mulch their grass clippings into their yards to minimize the yard waste volume. The following additional restrictions apply to yard waste:
- No plastic bags or boxes.
- Do not mix yard waste with trash or recycling.
- No dirt, mulch, root balls, rocks or sod.
