The City of Charleston Street Department will begin loose leaf collection on Monday, October 21. Loose leaves must be raked to the edge of the street to be picked up. Leaves that are raked into alleyways will not be collected. Tree limbs, yard waste and flowerpots should not be mixed with the loose leaves.

Loose leaf collection will take place on the following days:

Monday and Tuesday – Kanawha City

Wednesday and Thursday – South Hills

Friday – West Side, North Charleston and East End

While trucks will collect leaves each day throughout the week, some areas may not be picked up every week due to time constraints and the heavy volume of leaves to be collected. If leaves are not collected during the designated days for your area, trucks will begin collecting the following week in the area they stopped the previous week.

Residents are encouraged to bag loose leaves. Bags are collected with refuse according to the regular pick-up schedule. There is no limit to the amount of bagged leaves you can place with your refuse for collection. For assistance and questions, please call the Street Department at 304-348-6850.
