Loose Leaf Pickup Begins
(Fayetteville, N.C.) — Loose Leaf Pickup service has begun in Fayetteville. City staff is collecting loose leaves by zip code and collection has started in the 28304 zip code. Residents in that zip code should have their loose leaves to the curb immediately.
Residents are asked to follow these instructions:
- 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. For questions, citizens should call the Stormwater Hotline at (910) 433-1613.
Further details about loose leaf collection dates by zip code, which neighborhoods are being collected and more is available at https://fayettevillenc.gov/leafseason.
During Loose Leaf Pickup Season, citizens can pick up trash bags at any Fayetteville recreation center or fire station. Citizens can purchase a brown roll-out cart, which can be used for weekly collection of leaves and pine straw, as well as other yard waste. The City can deliver it to houses for a delivery fee or residents can pick it up at the Solid Waste Office at 455 Grove St. The cart becomes the property of the resident once purchased and has a 10-year warranty.
When Loose Leaf Pickup Season is not ongoing, citizens are encouraged to participate in weekly yard waste pickup. The City of Fayetteville provides a great service with loose leaf collection beginning during the fall part of the year. If citizens put their leaves out in sturdy bags or containers on their regular yard debris day, they will be picked up weekly. This also helps keep leaves out of the storm drains.
