Yard Debris and Loose Leaf Collection

Yard Debris

Yard debris service must be requested.  Please complete the Yard Debris Form or call 919-552-1408 to request service.

All requests for pick-up received by 5:00 pm on Monday will be scheduled for pick up that week.  To ensure service, debris should be placed curbside by Monday evening to be picked up before the end of the week. Requests received after 5:00 pm on Monday will be picked up the next week. 

Requirements for Collection

The Town requires that yard debris be placed in a bag or rigid medium-sized plastic container not to exceed 40 pounds. We ask that customers place yard debris in a 20 gallon rigid tote. This helps to ensure that the container will not weigh more than 40 lbs.  We can not pick up containers weighing more than 40 lbs.

Yard waste includes any vegetative material. No dirt or rocks will be collected  Large limbs can be placed curbside in a single pile for pick-up. Limbs should be cut down to 5 feet in length and 3-5 inches in diameter.

Please do not place yard debris or limbs on a tarp.

Remember, that yard debris removal is a residential service. If landscapers do yard work at your home, they are responsible for hauling away any yard waste generated. Yard debris left by landscape contractors, tree surgeons or other paid technicians will not be collected.

Loose Leaf Collection

Loose leaf collection service is provided from mid-October through mid-February. 

Requirements for Collection

From mid-October thru mid-February, leaves are vacuumed curbside. Please do not place in a bag or container. Place loose leaves and pine straw that are free of limbs, sticks, rocks and other debris at the curb in one large pile by Sunday evening of your regularly schedule recycle week. Do not place leaves in the street where they may interfere with traffic or drainage. Do not block sidewalks or fire hydrants. 

Loose leaves are picked-up the same week as your recycling. Determine your recycling route by subdivision and street, then cross reference the Green and Blue Recycling Schedule.
