Loose Leaf Collection Begins

Posted on Friday, October 20, 2017 in News

Loose leaf collection begins the week of October 23rd, 2017 and will end Mid-January.  This involves the use of a vacuum machine and trucks therefore it is essential that leaves be free of rocks, trash and limbs so that the equipment is not damaged.  You may continue to bag the leaves or place in a container however it is not required until the loose leaf pickup season is over.

  1. LOOSE LEAVES – All leaves must be raked behind the curb (not into storm drains, ditches or gutters on the street)
  2. BAGGED LEAVES – All leaves must be in CLEAR plastic bags and weigh less than 50 lbs. per bag.  Bags must be left at the curb. Do not put in street or gutters and ditches

Make certain that no leaves are left on top of your water meter. Leaves will generally be picked up on a two or three week rotation; however this is dependent on weather conditions and leaf accumulation.  If you have any questions, contact the Public Services Department at 252-431-6115 or 252-431-6118. Also, please keep in mind after January 19, 2018 if leaves are not bagged there will be a $75.00 charge.
