The Town of Gretna operates the leaf vac during the months of September 1st - December 31st.  The vacuum truck will be running throughout Town as needed during this time. 

All leaves must be raked to the curbside for collection.  Please keep leaf piles clear of all drainage ditches, pipes and culverts.  Please keep all rocks, branches and twigs out of your leaf piles, as they will damage the equipment.  Hazardous debris must be removed from the piles before leaves will be picked up. 

  • Leaves must be separated from all other items.
  • Place the limbs and brush separate.
  • From January 1st - August 31st all leaves must be bagged and placed at the curb for pick up.

Your cooperation in properly preparing leaves for collection will help us do our best to serve you. 

Due to hazards and public safety to our environment, state law prohibits leaf burning in Town limits because we offer the service of leaf collection.

When leaves are ready for pickup, call the Town Office at 434-656-6572.
