The City of Martinsville reminds residents that blowing or raking leaves into the street, drains, or on public property is not permitted. Neither is burning leaves on public property. They will collect your leaves as long as you put them in plastic bags no larger than 56 gallons and place them at the back of the curb. Now through the end of December, collection trucks will pick up properly disposed leaves Monday through Friday. A small number of bags is permitted with your regular trash collection.
