Press release from the city of Asheville:
Leaf season is upon us, and with that comes leaf collection. The City of Asheville Sanitation Department picks up leaves on an alternating schedule. Be sure to leave bags untied or use a reusable container marked “leaves”.
And if you need some reusable bags, you can pick them up from any City of Asheville fire station!
Here are the details:
The City of Asheville provides bagged leaf collection service on an alternating schedule and provides reusable leaf bags at City of Asheville fire stations on a first come – first served basis.
Bagged leaves are collected twice per month and should be placed to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the Monday of the assigned collection week. For residents with a Monday and Tuesday trash collection, bagged leaves will be collected the first and third week of each month. For residents with a Wednesday and Thursday trash collection, bagged leaves will be collected during the second and fourth week of each month. Bagged leaves are collected year round.
Reusable leaf bags are now available at City of Asheville fire stations. To ensure collection, leaves should be placed in untied bags or a reusable container marked “leaves”. Residents can find curbside leaf collection weeks by visiting the city’s website.
Composting is another alternative for the loose leaves to be placed and is great for the soil in your garden.
