Video: Leaf Collection in Arlington County

Arlington County’s leaf bag collection will start on Monday (Nov. 4), with vacuum leaf collection starting a week later.

A new video produced by the county (above) explains how the Arlington Dept. of Environmental Services handles the logistics of leaf collection and how officials set the leaf collections schedule based on a scientific analysis of when leaves will begin falling.

Leaves collected in Arlington are taken to the county’s earth products recycling yard, then ground into mulch, stored and eventually distributed back to Arlington residents who want the mulch for their yards and gardens.

A vacuum leaf collection schedule has been posted on the Arlington County website.
