Do not put yard waste in your green or grey rollout carts. Your yard waste will be collected by a different crew on the same day that your garbage is collected. NC Law requires yard waste to be collected separate from garbage.
The following items are collected by your yard waste crew:
- Limbs (No larger than 4 feet in length or 4 inches in diameter)
- Logs (No larger than 4 feet in length or 4 inches in diameter)
- Grass clippings (Contained in a private container that is 32 gallons or less in size with handles. You may have more than one container if necessary). DO NOT USE ANY YARD WASTE BAGS.
- Yard Waste carts are available for a one time $50.00 cart lease, the City will repair any damages free of charge. You may place all you loose clippings, small limbs, or any compostable material inside of this cart. Please contact customer service to request a yard waste cart.

- Leaves (Vacuumed at the curb from October 1 to March 31st. April 1st through September 30th leaves will be collected the same method as grass clippings.)
