DPW Leaf Collection

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. 
See the ward-by-ward schedule or visit the DPW website to plan the best time to rake leaves from your yard. You can also check your address on the DPW map to see the planned leaf pickup times through December.
