York County's Leaf Collection Program Begins
Beginning Monday, November 7, York County residents who live on publicly maintained roads may place an unlimited number of clear bags of leaves at the front roadside for collection every other week. Residents who live in private communities or on privately maintained roads may bring leaves to the closest public roadway for collection.
Bags must be placed at the roadside by 7 a.m. on the Monday or your collection week. Pick up will be completed by the end of the week.
For leaf collections, the County is divided into two zones:
- The Southern Zone includes all homes south of Dare Road, including neighborhoods in Grafton, Tabb, Brandywine, Coventry, Kiln Creek, Running Man, Calthrop Neck Road and Carys Chapel Road. Collection weeks for the Southern Zone are:

Leaves must be in clear bags no thicker than one millimeter and bags must be easy to handle by one person (maximum weight – 40 lbs.). No drawstring bags, please! Clear bags can be purchased at local hardware, grocery and department stores. Bags containing other yard debris (sticks, etc.) and/or pet waste will not be accepted.
Please note that ALL residents may bring leaves to the VPPSA Compost Facility (145 Goodwin Neck Road) year-round. The facility is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
