James City County announces leaf collection options
Between Nov. 7 and Nov. 20 and Jan. 2 and Jan. 15, James City County residents may drop off leaves free of charge at the Jolly Pond Convenience Center located at 1204 Jolly Pond Rd. daily between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Leaves will only be accepted in clear bags no larger than lawn or leaf-size (40 gallons or less). Leaves from commercial lawn service companies will be accepted by Convenience Center staff with a letter from the resident containing the resident’s name, address and telephone number.
At all other times, leaves may be self-hauled by using coupons available at the Treasurer’s Office, Satellite Office, all County fire stations or online. One coupon per four lawn and leaf-sized bags is required.
Brush and tree limbs are not included in the free collection and will require coupons.
Bagged leaves will be available, free of charge, for personal composting only.
James City County will provide one round of curbside leaf collection. Collection dates are determined by voting district. Due to the recent redistricting, residents’ voting districts may have changed. District information can be found on the maps on the County’s website, the State Board of Elections website or by calling the Voter Registrar’s Office at 757-253-6868.
