Albemarle Leaf Pickup Schedule
It’s that time of year again! The leaves are falling and the days are getting shorter. Leaf pickup will begin on Monday, October 16th. We will use the zones on the map below and the corresponding days of collection on the calendar. Please do not mix leaves with limbs, sticks, brush and other debris as this will result in delays. This should help us to maintain our schedule better and enhance the service provided to the citizens of Albemarle.
Please clip out this map and keep it for future reference. A map will also be available on the city website at www.albemarlenc.gov Please have leaves ready on your pickup day. We cannot wait for you to rake, or come back to the same street until your next scheduled day, so please have all your leaves to the curb by the morning of pickup. DO NOT MIX YARD WASTE WITH LEAVES.
Notes on Leaf Collection:
- Leaves will be collected year-round if placed in bags weighing no more than 50 pounds.
