loose-leaf-collection

Roadside loose leaf collection for Newport News begins on Monday, November 18. The Street Maintenance Division of Public Works is conducting the annual loose leaf collection until January 3, 2020. A second and final collection will be done on January 6. Residents must have all leaves roadside by 7 AM. Residents are asked to rake leaves to the edge of the road during the time designated for your area, without blocking traffic >or drainage ditches, and crews will pick them up. Each street will be collected once during the week as indicated on the map.

Here are some guidelines to follow when raking leaves to the curb.

  • Please wait until the week prior to the start of your scheduled collection to place your leaves at the roadside.
  • Rake leaves into a pile at the edge of the road, but not in the curb/gutter or drainage ditch.
  • Do not pile leaves so that they block traffic.
  • Leaves mixed with twigs and branches will not be picked up.
  • Do not cover water meters or utility boxes.
  • Burning of leaves is not permitted in the City of Newport News.
  • Leaves placed in clear plastic bags are collected year around on regular bulk waste collection days; however, there is a limit of 30 clear 33 gallon bags per collection.

More information on the Roadside Loose Leaf Collection program can be found on Public Works' Street Maintenance Division website.
