DPW Reverses Course — Leaf Collection to Remain Unchanged this Year

Earlier this season, Mayor Bowser announced that the Department of Public Works would not be collecting leaves as in past years. Instead DPW planned to give every household they served bags in which to bag leaves for collection. While this plan was reportedly due to public health concerns related to COVID, it did not provide a solution for residents who do not live in residential properties.

Last week, the District changed course and decided to instead move forward with leaf collection unchanged from previous years. Bags are no longer needed. As of October 31, residents are being asked to rake their
leaves and place them in the front of their residence at the curb or in the tree box for collection.

Below is the map that shows the four collection areas in Ward 1. Park View residents live in Zone C. The collection schedule for Zone C is as follows:

  • Rake leaves out by November 22 for collection between November 23 to 28.
  • Rake leaves out by December 27 for collection between December 28 to January 2, 2021.
