Leaf Collection for the 2021-2022 season is scheduled to begin on Monday, Nov. 8.

Seasonal Loose Leaf Collection is an annual service that is provided to Raleigh residents who opt to rake leaves from their lawns into piles near the curb, not into the street. Specialized equipment uses a giant vacuum to collect leaves in residential areas.

Raleigh neighborhoods are divided into 12 zones for this service.
