Vacuum machines collect loose leaves from mid-October until around mid-March only. Leaves will need to be bagged for collection during other times. Bagged leaves are collected on your regular yard waste collection day (the same day as trash collection).
During loose-leaf collection season (mid-October to mid-March), residents are asked to have all loose leaves raked to the curb by Monday morning of your collection week to be ensured they are collected by Friday. Pile leaves no more than five feet deep from the curb, up to any height, and at least three feet away from anything else. During this time, you may call (704) 638-5260 about scheduled collection in your neighborhood, download a schedule online at www.salisburync.gov/LeafMap, or look for a schedule in your October billing notice.
