(Fayetteville, N.C. Nov. 15, 2011) – With beautiful leaves now falling off trees, Loose Leaf Pickup is set to begin Monday, Nov. 28 in Fayetteville and will run through Feb. 3.
Citizens should follow these instructions:
- On the first day of collection in each zip code, leaves and pine straw must be curbside
- Place leaves and pine straw on the top of the curb away from storm drains and out of the road
- Leaves and pine straw only – no tree limbs.
Leaf season hangtag schedules will be placed on household trash cart-handles for citizens to view easily and take inside for reference. A recommended place to keep the hangtag is on a refrigerator.
Citizens are reminded that bad weather may cause delays.
During loose leaf season, citizens can pick up trash bags at any recreation center or fire station. Citizens can purchase a brown roll-out cart for $52 by calling 433-(1FAY) 1329 or by going to the Environmental Services Department at 455 Grove St. The cart can be picked up or the City will deliver it for $11.25.
Residents do not have to wait for loose leaf season to have their leaves and pine straw collected. If citizens put their leaves out in sturdy bags or containers on regular yard debris days they will be picked up as usual. Please do your part to help keep leaves out of the storm drains.
Citizens can read the guidelines and view the leaf season schedule by zip code at http://www.ci.fayetteville.nc.us/LeafSeason/. Another hangtag is available by clicking on Hangtag Brochure. For more information, call (910) 433-1FAY (1329).
