Get ready for free bagged-leaf collection

Pretty leaves

The beauty of turning and falling leaves gives us autumn enjoyment . . . until we look around and wonder what to do with all those turned and fallen leaves on the lawn.

Well, James City County is offering a free option. The county will provide curbside leaf collection between Dec. 6 and Dec. 13 in Ford’s Colony.

County trucks will circulate through Ford’s Colony for one round of leaf collection — and then off to the dump — during that time. NOTE: Leaves must be secured in clear bags no larger than lawn or leaf bags, i.e. no more than 40 gallons. Please gather your leaves and have your bags on the curb by 8 a.m. Dec. 6.

Be sure to not include things like trimmed branches, grass clippings and other yard debris, however, as that will not be accepted. You can check the county website for more information on the free leaf pickup.
