Vacuum service can be paid for in person at the DPW main office on the 7th floor of City Hall; mail in payment to DPW at 700 E. Broad St., Suite 704, Richmond, VA 23219, or if you request the service online, it can be added to your utility bill.

Church Hill People’s News I assume that means we need to bag everything up. I might be confusing this with just plain street cleaning though.
