HOW LOOSE LEAF COLLECTION WORKS:

Loose Leaf Collection is a service for property owners inside the city limits and who do their own yard work.  Landscape contractors are responsible for proper disposal of all leaf piles they create.

Loose leaf piles are collected in the fall and winter months, usually beginning in late October and completed by February.  It is the responsibility of each resident to make him or herself aware of that season's schedule and to have their loose leaf pile prepared in time for collection.  (Scroll down to see where schedules are updated)

The City is divided into four geographical areas. Each area will be collected a minimum of three times during the 12-week collection period. Every street will be collected one time during each of the three separate pickups. 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 crews move through the zones quicker during the first weeks of the collection period. Once the majority of the leaves fall, it can take five to eight days for a crew to complete an area. It is important for residents to check the schedule regularly to note any changes in the schedule because of weather, equipment issues and quantity of leaves.

Bagged leaves are typically collected faster than loose leaves.  Clear plastic bags (preferable) are available for purchase (20 for $2) at the Statesville Customer Service counter, 301 S. Center St.  Leaf bags should be free of other sticks and other yard debris and trash.
