Loose Leaf Collection Begins Nov. 1
Loose leaf collection is here. All-Star Waste will run it every other week through the end of February. Leaf trucks always run the same day as recycle collection--sometimes a day early or a day late too. Be sure that loose leaf piles are free of stones, bricks, branches and other solid objects. Heavy volume or rainy weather may cause delays.
All-Star will continue to collect clear bagged or containerized yard waste (including leaves) every week all year long.
For more information, please contact the Public Works Department (919) 772-7600.
