Search your address to find your schedule

Remember to set leaves out correctly for pickup:

  • Place at curb and out of roadway by 7 a.m. on the first date of your collection periods.
  • Avoid covering sidewalks, storm drains, water meters, fire hydrants and sewer clean-outs.
  • Keep piles at a distance from mail boxes and parked cars.
  • Keep trash, large stones and other debris out of leaf piles.         

Off-Schedule Loose Leaf Collection ($100 fee)

Additional or off-schedule collections between November 4, 2019 and February 2, 2020 can be made by appointment and are subject to a $100 fee per household; submit a request, or call 311 or  (919) 469-4090.

Year-Round Alternatives 

Leaves in reusable containers or brown paper bags may be placed curbside for weekly yard waste collection. Yard waste can also be taken, at no charge, to the Citizen's Convenience Center at 313 N. Dixon Ave. Or, consider adding your leaves to a home compost pile.
