This season, the Department of Public Works will follow a 1-week collection schedule to reduce the time between when you rake/bag your leaves and when DPW collects them. DPW will make two 1-week passes in our neighborhood between November 2 and January 9.
Burleith is in Ward 2/Area D, meaning that:
Cycle 1: Rake leaves out by Sunday, November 22, for collection from November 23 to 28.
Cycle 2: Rake leaves out by Sunday, December 20, for collection from December 21 to 26.

Rake loose leaves into your treebox or bag your leaves (using paper bags, please) and place them in your treebox. Loose and bagged leaves in the treebox, or at the curb if there is no treebox, will be composted.
Please—leaves only! Tree limbs, bricks, dirt, rocks, etc. will damage the equipment and delay collections.
