UPDATED VACUUM DATES: 2nd Round Fall Leaf Pick Up




Petersburg, Va: Petersburg’s Public Works & Utilities Department will continue their annual fall leaf pick up program. Due to several weather delays, another round of leaf vacuuming dates have been announced. 

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 this round of 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. For additional information about bagged leaf collection, please call the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority at (804) 425-0500.

Citizens who miss their scheduled vacuum dates may also purchase individual vacuum leaf services at a cost of $75 per load. Residents who pay for individual vacuum services will still need to rake their leaves into a pile between the sidewalk and curb. For more information about this service, please call the City’s Street Operations Division at (804) 733-2415.

Vacuum dates are as follows (dates are subject to change with weather conditions):

Ward 3:  January 28 - February 4, 2019

Wards 1 & 4:  February 5 - 11, 2019

Wards 2 & 7:  February 12 - 18, 2019
