  • Do not place leaves within three feet of other obstacles (parked vehicles, trees, mailboxes, fire hydrants, utility poles, etc.)
  • Do not place leaves on top of water meters.
  • Bagged leaves should not be mixed with other yard debris or trash items.  Place bags on the curb for pick-up.
  • Residents are responsible for having their leaves on the curb by 7 a.m. on the Monday of their scheduled pickup period. Crews will not return to a street once it is completed until the next rotation.

OTHER OPTIONS:

  • Utilize a mulching lawnmower and mulch leaves back into the lawn, providing nutrients for the soil.
  • Place leaves in and around plant beds and under trees and shrubs for good soil nutrients and plant insulation.

HOW LOOSE LEAF COLLECTION WORKS:

The City is divided into four geographical areas.  Each area will be serviced twice during the 12-week collection period.  Residents must place their leaves on the curb prior to their scheduled pickup date.  Crews will not return to a street once it is completed until the next rotation.

The loose leaf pick-up schedule is available on the City’s website – www.statesvillenc.net; on Facebook - www.facebook.com/CityofStatesville/; Twitter - @cityofsvl; Spectrum Cable government channel 20.  The Hello Statesville Sunday night calls will also have updated information each week.  You can register to receive these recorded calls by calling 704-878-3583 or click here
