Leaf Collection for the 2020-2021 season has been completed!
Crews completed the second round of leaf collection on Wednesday, March 17. The City of Raleigh seasonal leaf collection began on Monday, November 9, 2020.
Loose leaf collection is residential service for citizens living inside Raleigh city limits and features two rounds of vacuuming leaf piles placed between the curb and sidewalk. This season, crews collected 2,845 loads of leaves estimated at over 14,225 tons or 62,590 cubic yards. This amount would fill an entire football field at a height of over 40 feet!
Starting today, through Monday, March 29, residents can begin calling in requests for leaf piles to be collected that may have been put out late, blocked by vehicles or otherwise missed.
Collection requests can be made by calling 919-996-6446. To be added to the list, you will need to provide your name, address and phone number.
