The DC Department of Public Works will begin leaf collection in Hill East next Monday, Nov. 21, with leaves on all blocks collected by Saturday, Dec. 3. You can rake leaves into your treebox space or easement for collection. Bagging is not necessary, but if you do bag your leaves, please use paper bags. Branches, dirt, bricks, rocks, etc. will not be collected – only leaves.
DPW will conduct at least two collections in our neighborhood. The second collection will begin on Monday, Dec. 19 and conclude by Saturday, Dec. 31.
You can read more about the leaf collection program on DPW’s website.
