Town of Vienna residents will see public works crews collecting leaves today, the first of three collections to take place through December.
Crews will start in north Vienna and work their way south to collect leaves residents have raked to their curbs.
This year, the town will have a flexible schedule for the collections to increase efficiency and account for weather-related issues.
"Leaf piles should be free of limbs, sticks, acorns or other debris which may clog the vacuum hose," according to a news release from the town.
Over the next few months, signs with the next projected date for leaf collection will be placed at the entrances of neighborhoods.
Residents may also bag leaves for collection on your regular weekly collection
day. Leaves should be placed in clear plastic bags or paper yard waste bags available at garden and home supply stores.
