- The City of Falls Church has waived fees for brush pick-up through Nov. 7. The city requests residents do the following to prepare both leaves and debris for collection:
- Place brush at the curb; do not obstruct the sidewalks or right-of-ways. Leave the gutter pan clear of all debris.
- Do not combine leaves and limbs. Rake or bag leaves independently from branches and other large yard debris.
- Cut large tree limbs into segments no longer than 5 feet; brush that exceeds this length requires additional manpower and resources. Smaller debris can be bundled or placed in brown, compostable yard-waste bags.
- Leave only vegetative matter for pick-up; this collection is exclusively for tree limbs and brush downed by Monday’s storm. Fee waivers do not apply to special trash collections.
