Leaf Collection

The York County Curbside Leaf Collection program has been completed for the 2018-2019 season.

Leaves typically are collected during the months of November through January.  During this time, York County residents who reside on publicly maintained streets or roads can place an unlimited number of clear bags of leaves at the front roadside for collection every other week.

Residents who live in private communities or on privately maintained streets or roads may bring leaves to the closest public roadway for collection.  In addition, ALL RESIDENTS may bring leaves year-round to the VPPSA Compost Facility located at 145 Goodwin Neck Road, Monday through Saturday, 8am—4pm.

For leaf collection purposes, the County is divided into two zones:

The Northern Zone includes all homes on and north of Dare Road, including neighborhoods along Wolf Trap Road, Goodwin Neck Road, and homes in and near Marlbank, Edgehill, Queens Lake, Hubbard's Lane, Skimino, and Lightfoot. The Southern Zone includes all homes south of Dare Road, including neighborhoods in Grafton, Tabb, Brandywine, Coventry, Kiln Creek, Calthrop Neck, Running Man, and Cary's Chapel Road area.

Leaves must be in clear bags (no drawstrings, please!) and bags must be easy to handle by one person (max. weight limit = 40 pounds).  Clear bags can be purchased at local hardware, grocery, and department stores.

Bags must be at the front roadside by 7am on the Monday of your collection week.   Pick up will be completed by the end of the week. 

Please check our website in the Fall of 2019 for our leaf collection schedule for the 2019-2020 season.  For additional information, please call York County Waste Management at (757) 890-3780.
