Vacuum leaf collection is a difficult job - the volume of leaves is ever changing, precipitation and freezing temperatures complicate collection, the collection itself can be dangerous for staff and other variables like daily traffic patterns, etc affect the logistics.

The City of Falls Church's vacuum leaf collection program is among the region's best.  Compared to one or two passes, the schedule below offers residents at least three passes. Crews often double back and make additional passes.

The map below provides a time-lapse view of typical collection patterns (how collection occurs within an area).  As noted above, if the variables change, so does the routing. Progress is mapped daily to eliminate missed collections. Please be patient with our team as we strive for the highest level of service delivery possible.
