Leaf Collection



Between Nov. 9-22 and Jan. 2-17, James City County residents may drop off leaves free of charge at the Jolly Pond Convenience Center, 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, Freedom Park, the James City County Recreation Center and the Abram Frink Jr. Community Center 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.
