Kannapolis leaf collection starts Oct. 17
KANNAPOLIS —Loose leaf collection will begin Oct. 17 in Kannapolis. Loose leaves and bagged yard waste collection will occur every other week through March 2, 2012.
The collection system breaks the city up into 10 pick-up zones, following the same zones used last year. To determine zone and collection days, visit www.cityofkannapolis.com and click on “Loose Leaf Collection.” Residents can also view a large zone map at the Customer Service Center, 234 Dale Earnhardt Blvd.
Leaves must be placed at the curb or along the ditch line (not in ditches) in rows parallel with the street by 7 a.m. on the designated collection day. Leaves mixed with limbs, other yard waste, gravel, glass or other solid matter will not be collected. Leaves in garbage containers will not be collected. Leaves must be clear of water meters and fences and placed on the street side of retaining walls. Leaves should also be clear of sidewalks and the street.
Free mulch will be available to the general public on Oct. 15 and 22 from 7 a.m. to noon at the Water Treatment Plant, 1303 Pump Station Road. Public Works staff will be on hand to load trucks and trailers with ground mulch.
