Time to get raking, everyone! D.C.'s Department of Public Works will begin collecting fall leaves on November 7. The DPW will vacuum and compost your leaves on a designated date, depending on your Ward and neighborhood. It's easy for you and beneficial to the environment!
Just remember to:
Rake the leaves into a pile within a tree-box space.
Remove any tree limbs or rocks from the pile.
Check for trash. Making sure your pile is free of litter can help prevent water pollution.
