Yard Waste

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Do not put yard waste in your green or gray rollout carts. Your yard waste will be collected by a different crew on the same day that your garbage is collected. N. C. Law requires yard waste to be collected separate from garbage.
The following items are collected by your yard waste crew:


  • limbs (No larger than 4 feet in length or 4 inches in diameter)
  • logs (need to meet the same criteria as limbs)
  • grass clippings (contained either in clear plastic bags or old garbage cans)
  • leaves (vacuumed at the curb from October 1 to March 31st)

For more information, please see the Quick Links section to the right.
Offices for Solid Waste are open 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and are located at 700 North Broad Street.
