Alexandria Relaxing Storm Debris Removal Requirements

City's trash collection and recycling services on delayed schedule following Hurricane Sandy.

Alexandria is relaxing some of its requirements for the removal of tree debris until Nov. 13 following Hurricane Sandy.

City crews will be collecting tree debris from the curb and public rights-of-way over the next week. Residents are asked to place debris on the curb in pieces that can be safely handled and to stay away from any tree limbs leaning on power lines.

Downed wires should be reported to Dominion Virginia Power by dialing 1-866-366-4357.

City trash collection and recycling services will resume Wednesday with a delayed scheduled. Regular Monday collection will occur on Wednesday this week, Tuesday’s collection on Thursday, Wednesday’s collection on Friday and Thursday’s collection on Saturday.

Leaf collection services will resume Monday. Bags will be collected at the front curb one business day after the regular refuse collection day. Due to Hurricane Sandy’s heavy rains, the city asks residents refrain from raking wet leaves into the street for collection until week. Residents should bag leaves for collection in the meantime.

  • Residents in Zone 3 should rake out Tuesday for pickup Sunday
  • Residents in Zone 4 should rake out Nov. 12 for pickup Nov. 14
  • Residents in Zone 1 should rake out Nov. 17 for pickup Nov. 19
