Per City Ordinance A-27, it is unlawful to place leaves, tree trimmings or other refuse from yards or gardens onto the streets of the City of Richmond.

Beginning October 15th, 2014 (approximate date) thru the end of December 2014, (as in previous years) the City Street department will begin picking up leaves that have been raked to the City sidewalks. This will be done on the same schedule as the trash pick up for the City.

Abiding by this ordinance will help prevent our City drains from being clogged.
