Kannapolis leaf collection starts Monday

KANNAPOLIS — Beginning Monday and until March 9, Kannapolis city crews will collect loose leaves. At all other times of the year, leaves must be bagged.

Leaves must be placed at the curb or along the ditch line — not in the ditch — in rows parallel with the street. Leaves should not be piled on a sidewalk.

Place leaves at the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of collection to ensure pick-up that day. For a leaf collection schedule, visit kannapolisnc.gov/yardwaste.

Leaves mixed with limbs, other yard waste, gum balls, gravel, glass or other solid matter will not be collected. These items can damage equipment and delay collection.

All other yard debris must be bagged and placed away from loose leaves and carts so crews can use the proper equipment. Yard waste should be bagged all year, with the exception of bushes and limbs and loose leaves during the loose-leaf collection season. Leaves in garbage containers will not be collected.

Leaves must not be placed near water meters and fences, and they should be placed on the street side of retaining walls.

Leaves often get into storm drains. The city urges residents to check the drains in their neighborhood and help unclog them of leaves and litter to prevent flooding.

For more information about loose leaf collection and stormwater, visit kannapolisnc.gov/yardwaste.
