During the vacuum dates, residents should rake leaves into a pile between the sidewalk and curb or shoulder of the road and not into the streets or ditches. Bulky materials such as brush and tree limbs should not be mixed in with leaves.
Citizens who miss their scheduled vacuum dates should bag their leaves. Central Virginia Waste Management Authority will pick up 60 bags of leaves per property these leaves may be placed on the curb on the regular trash collection day.
