Loose Leaf Collection

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Between February 4 and March 29, the Town will collect loose leaves at no charge by appointment only; call (919) 469-4090 or visit services.townofcary.org to schedule per household. Don’t forget, leaves can also be great additions to compost piles.  

Remember to set leaves our correctly for pickup:

  • Place at curb and out of roadway
  • 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 March 30 and December 31, 2019 can be made by appointment and are subject to a $100 fee per household; submit a request or call (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.
