The Town of Vinton Public Works Department will begin its annual leaf collections on Monday, November 6 and end on Friday, December 15.
Citizens are reminded that leaves should be raked no closer than one foot and no further than five feet from the back of the curb or edge of the street located in front of the residence.
Do not place leaves in the street or gutter as this may cause rainwater to pond and leaves to wash into the roadway creating hazards and obstructing traffic.
Sticks, limbs, rocks and other debris should not be included in the leaves as these items can clog and damage the collection equipment.
Leaves must be raked to the proper location by 7:00 a.m. Leaves should not be put out too early, and should not block sidewalks.
Bagged leaves will be collected weekly on the resident’s regular refuse collection day. Weather and equipment breakdown issues can cause delays. We ask for your patience and cooperation.
Please call 983-0646 if further information is needed. The leaf collection zone map is available on the Town of Vinton website at www.vintonva.gov .
