Yard Waste Collection Resumes Regular Schedule
Solid Waste Collection on Normal Schedule for July 4

City of Charlotte yard waste collection resumes regular schedule and garbage, recycling, yard waste and bulk waste on Monday, July 4. 

Solid Waste Services’ yard waste collection service has resumed its normal weekly collection schedule after several successful employee recruitment events.

In April, Solid Waste Services alerted residents that the yard waste collection program was delayed because of staffing shortages. As of July 4, Solid Waste Services has sufficient staffing to resume weekly yard waste collection as scheduled.

Please follow these yard waste preparation guidelines:

  • Place yard waste at the curb by 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
  • Use only paper yard waste bags or reusable containers weighing no more than 75 pounds when preparing leaves and grass clippings for yard waste collection. Limbs and branches may be placed in bags or reusable containers.
  • Limbs and branches should be no more than 5 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter.
  • Piles of limbs and branches should be no more than 5 feet long and 3 feet high. There should be at least 2 feet between each pile.
  • Do not tie limbs.
  • Logs must be less than 4 inches in diameter.
  • Tree stumps will not be collected.
