Leaves

The Field Operations Department's annual Loose Leaf Collection Program took place from November 13, 2018 through February 7, 2019. More than 13,950 tons of leaves were collected by the city and made into compost to fertilize City gardens and landscaped areas. The leaf collection program also keeps leaves from blocking storm drains and prevents decaying leaves from polluting our lakes and streams. 

Compost for Sale 

You may purchase the compost at the White Street Landfill, 2503 White Street., or by calling 336-373-CITY (2489).

How to Participate

While the 2018-19 Leaf Collection Program has ended, you can always use the City’s year-round yard waste program. Simply put your leaves in clear plastic bags or in a plastic or metal garbage can, and set them at the curb on your regular trash collection day.

During the program, residents can find out where your neighborhood is on the pick-up schedule by using this interactive map.
