Starting Monday, November 7th through December 20th, the Town of Farmville will operate its vacuum service leaf collection. Before and after these dates, leaves must be bagged and called in for regular Monday pickups.

- December 12th - 20th - will consist of spot pickup to cover town as needed.
Leaves must be out by 8:00 a.m. on the first scheduled day of your collection week. Rake your leaves to the curb or to property line near your street. Do not rake leaves into the street! Keep leaf piles clear of drainage ditches, pipes and culverts. If you need leaves for composting to help nourish your plants or garden, the town will deliver leaves to you on a first-call, first-serve basis. Keep all rocks, branches and twigs out of your leaf piles, as they will damage the equipment. Hazardous debris must be removed from piles before leaves will be picked up. Many times brush and limbs are being placed on top of the loose leaves. Separate the leaves from all other items. Place the limbs and brush separate from the leaves. Your cooperation in properly preparing leaves for collection will help us do our best to serve you. *Because of hazards of public safety and to our environment, state law prohibits leaf burning.
