End of Leaf Season Announcement

Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Thank you for helping us have a great leaf season this year.  As of February 19, 2024, we will resume normal yard waste pickup with the pile size limitations in place.  Please see below for city code references pertaining to yard waste collection.

Residential yard trash is defined as the collection of vegetative materials from residential property.  This type of trash may include, but is not limited to, trimmings, tree branches, pine straw, leaves, and grass clippings.  These items, created through normal and routine residential property maintenance, may be put out for pickup.

It shall be unlawful to place yard trash on, or within three feet of, the water meter, fire hydrant, or any other obstacle.
Yard trash piles are limited to one pile per property.
Yard trash piles cannot be placed under utility lines or tree limbs with less than twenty feet of overhead clearance.
The maximum length of a yard trash pile is twelve feet.
During leaf season yard trash piles, consisting of predominately leaves, may exceed the twelve-foot maximum length.
The Public Services Director, or his department designee, will determine when leaf season begins and ends each year.
All limbs or other vegetative debris must be cut in lengths of six feet or less.

Please contact the Public Services Department at 803-642-7613 with any questions.

Solid Waste Administrator
