Curbside Etiquette

  • Place your leaves on the curb in front of your residence on the edge of the yard and behind the curb.
  • Leaves should not be placed in the street or on the sidewalks.
  • Do not park near the leaf pile.
  • Do not mix sticks or tree limbs in with the leaf pile.
  • Do not place leaves near storm drains; clogged storm drains cause flooding.
  • Do not cover up your water meter.

  • Place leaves in 32-gallon containers that have lids and handles.
  • Utilize a mulching lawn mower and mulch leaves back into the lawn, providing nutrients for the soil.

Leaf Collection Alternatives

Crews will pick up bagged leaves and limbs (4 ft. length or less) up to 2 cubic yards (3'x3'x3') at the curb any time of the year, typically on your regular garbage collection day. Do not place yard debris in the streets. If a resident uses a contract landscaper, the landscaper is responsible for removing the yard waste.

If there is more than a pick-up truck load of debris, schedule a pick-up at 704-878-3415.

There may be a $65 fee.

To schedule a pickup of yard waste (not including leaves), please use the contact form below:

You may take these to the landfill and place them in drop off areas.
