The Field Operations Department has completed its annual Loose Leaf Collection Program for 2019-20. More than 11,880 tons of leaves were picked up.
Residents can still use the year-round yard waste collection service. Yard waste, including leaves, is collected weekly on your regular garbage collection day. Please follow the guidelines below:
Use your own 32-gallon trash can. Your can should have handles and a lid. Irregularly shaped containers may not be serviced. Filled cans should weigh no more than 50 pounds. If you were to place a lid on the can, all materials should be contained inside. Long branches protruding from the container may result in service denial.
Use only heavy duty clear plastic bags. Using black plastic bags, paper bags, and green recycling bags will result in non-collection. Filled bags must weigh less than 50 pounds.
Tie yard waste in bundles not more than five feet long and no heavier than 50 pounds.
Compost for Sale
Leaves are made into compost to fertilize City gardens and landscaped areas. Residents may purchase the compost at the White Street Landfill, 2503 White Street, or by calling 336-373-CITY (2489).
