We’re Keeping it Green in Holly Springs with a new way of collecting yard waste. New brown yard waste carts will be delivered to residents. Beginning in March, fill the cart with lawn clippings, leaves, and other types of yard waste, and place the cart behind the curb on the same day as recycling collection. Click here for yard waste cart collection FAQs.
The benefits of using carts for yard waste collection include:
More efficient collection.
Cleaner waterways for a better environment. Cart collection keeps debris out of storm drains that empty into local creeks, streams, and waterways.
Prevents flooding that can occur when yard waste clogs stormwater drains.
Less pollen and dust in the spring. The fine particles can’t be contained in vacuum trucks.
The biweekly cart collection will continue to run throughout the year – even next fall. In addition to a guaranteed biweekly collection of yard waste from carts, any leaves that don't fit in your cart can be left behind the curb for collection on a zone schedule, just like this year.
