After a windy, stormy weekend, city crews will be collecting leaves in local neighbourhoods this week.

The city’s annual leaf pick-up program has been extended this year to start earlier to include two dates for leaf collection, instead of one, like in previous years.

Leaf pick-up collection began in James Bay, Fairfield,Rockland, and Gonzales on Monday this week and will continue on Dec. 13.

Oaklands, Fernwood, North Jubilee and South Jubilee pick up dates are Nov. 8 and Dec. 20.

Victoria West, Burnside Gorge, Hillside Quadra, North Park, Harris Green and downtown pick up dates are Nov. 29 and Dec. 27.

Leaves should be placed on the boulevard and be visible and accessible from the street.

Until Dec. 16, residents can also contact the city parks office to arrange for their bagged leaves to be picked up at parks@victoria.ca.
