Leaf Collection Begins on October 27th

The City of Graham is ready to begin fall & winter leaf collection.  Collection crews will begin on Monday, October 27, 2014 and continue thru Friday, January 30, 2015.  Residents are encouraged to use this “loose leaf” collection service because of landfill disposal regulations. Residents should pile loose leaves behind the curb or on the shoulder of streets without curb and gutter.

Leaves should not be piled in the street, drainage ditches, or over water meters.  Leaves which contain gravel, glass, or other solid matter will not be collected.  Should more frequent leaf collection be desired, residents are required to place leaves in suitable containers and set them out with their regular yard waste.  Bagged leaves will not be collected. Questions concerning leaf collection should be directed to the Sanitation Division at 570-6709.  Please do not call requesting special pick-up, crews work set areas and schedules.
