GREENSBORO, N.C. — Leaf collection will begin Tuesday, Nov. 12 in Greensboro.

The leaf collection program helps keep leaves from blocking storm drains and prevents decaying leaves from polluting lakes and streams.

Residents should rake leaves to the edge of the yard behind the curb, not in the street.

Remove sticks, rocks, and other debris that may damage City equipment.

Greensboro residents can also use the City’s year-round yard waste program.

Simply put leaves in clear plastic bags or in a plastic or metal garbage can and set them at the curb on regular trash collection day.

The leaf collection schedule may change due to inclement weather. The program does not service private streets.

The collected leaves are made into compost to fertilize City gardens and landscaped areas.

Residents may purchase the compost at the White Street Landfill, 2503 White Street or by calling 336-373-2489.
