It’s that time of year again, so listen up people, we have two weeks left to prepare our leaves for DC to rake ’em up! If not, we better have a lot of plastic bags! Here’s the pertinent info:

Bellevue Area A (see graphic) residents on the NORTH side of Atlantic Street and Mississippi Avenue, SE:

  1. The first round of leaf collection ended November 16
  2. Rake leaves into treebox by Sunday, December 1
  3. The leaves will be collected between December 2 — 14

Bellevue AREA B (see graphic) residents on the SOUTH side of Atlantic Street and Mississippi Avenue, SE:

  1. Rake leaves into treebox by Sunday, November 17
  2. The leaves will be collected between November 18 — November 30
  3. Rake leaves into treebox by Sunday, December 15
  4. The leaves will be collected between December 16 — December 28

Other things to keep in mind are that the leaves should be swept into the treeboxes (not the street), and should be leaves only–so no tree limbs, branches, rocks, etc. Also, here’s a link to the full dc-wide leaf collection schedule (PDF) with much more comprehensive information.

Happy raking,
