Richmond Street Department and Richmond Sanitary District will soon start collecting leaves in October. The Street Department will collect the leaves of households within the city limits while the Sanitary District will collect leaves of those outside city limits but within the sanitary district (see map).
Leaves should be raked into the roadway approximately two feet from the curb or edge of the road, where possible. In areas that have little or no curb lane, the leaves should be raked to the very edge of the curb or roadway. Leaf piles should be no higher than two feet so that the vision of drivers will not be obstructed and to make leaf pick-ups more efficient.
Please do not include anything besides leaves in the piles. Grass clippings, branches, garden waste, etc. in leaf piles hurt our leaf collection machines and can be dangerous to our workers. We will not collect leaf piles that contain these items.
Please do not place leaves in your weekly trash collection bins as they will not be picked up.
Richmond Street Department will collect leaves inside the city limits from October 16th, 2023 through December 15th, 2023, weather permitting. Five crews will cover all areas of the city within fifteen working days.
Residents who live on U.S. 27, U.S. 40 or S.R. 227 South (Boston Pike) must bag their leaves and call for a special pick up (983-7450), which will be done on Mondays. Residents on these roads are limited to ten 30-gallon bags of leaves per week.
Richmond Sanitary District will collect leaves for residents outside city limits but within the district starting October 30, 2023. Each house will have two collections based on its location. The schedule is as follows:
Area 1: Weeks of 10/30-11/3 and 11/20-11/24
Area 2: Weeks of 11/6-11/10 and 11/27-12/1
Area 3: Weeks of 11/13-11/17 and 12/4-12/8
Residents who live on U.S. 27, U.S. 40 or S.R. 227 South (Boston Pike) must bag their leaves and call for a special pick-up, which will be done on Mondays. Residents are limited to ten 30-gallon bags of leaves a week.
