Fall Leaf Removal

  • DPW crews can serve you better for loose leaf pickup if leaves are placed in long narrow rows at the curb.  
  • Please keep limbs, branches and rocks out of leaf piles as these items can damage the leaf machine.  
  • Leaves can also be placed in paper yard waste bags for pickup. 
  • Residents can self-haul leaves to the compost pile located behind the horse arena at Bogue Flats. 
  • Please DO NOT place any animal waste in leaf piles; these piles will not be picked up.  
  • Under the Refuse Ordinance the burning of brush and leaves is prohibited.

The last day for loose leaf pickup will be Monday, December 4, 2023. Please have leaves raked to the curb by 7:00 AM on December 4, 2023.

After December 4, 2023, leaves may be placed at the curb in paper yard waste bags for pickup.
