Leaf Season Pickup

At Your Disposal With Loose Leaf Pickup

autumn-leaf-clipart-1Containerize for Weekly Pickup

The City of Fayetteville provides a great service with loose leaf collection beginning during the fall part of the year. You do not have to wait for leaf pickup! If you put your leaves out in sturdy bags or containers on your regular yard debris day, they will be picked up weekly. This also helps keep leaves out of the storm drains.

Leaf Season Tips

  • During Loose Leaf Season, citizens can pick up trash bags at any recreation center or fire station
  • Citizens can purchase a brown roll-out cart for $53, which can be used for weekly collection of leaves and pine straw, as well as other yard waste. The City can deliver it to your house for $11.50 or you can pick it up at the Environmental Services Department (formerly Solid Waste Department) on Grove Street. The cart becomes the property of the resident once purchased and has a 10-year warranty.


  • Rake your leaves and pine straw curbside by day prior to your first scheduled day of pickup 
  • Bad weather may cause delays
  • Leaves and pine straw only - no tree limbs
  • Place leaves and pine straw on the top of the curb away from storm drains and out of the road. Leaves and pine straw left in the street can cause stormwater pollution and may obstruct the storm drainage system, resulting in flooding. Questions? Call the Stormwater Hotline at (910) 433-1613
