Bag Leaves Beginning March 16

The Town of Wake Forest’s loose leaf collection season ends Friday, March 13.

Beginning Monday, March 16, through Friday, Sept. 25, all leaves and grass clippings must be bagged for collection or placed inside a garbage receptacle marked ‘YW’ (yard waste).

Wake Forest residents are urged to adhere to the following guidelines to help improve the collection process:

  • Bags can be clear or opaque but they must be at least 13-gallons in size – the size of a standard kitchen garbage can liner;
  • Do not put yard waste in grocery store shopping bags or inside town-issued rollout garbage or recycling carts;
  • Do not mix in sticks, trash, rocks or other debris;
  • Place your bagged leaves and grass clippings at the curb by 7 a.m. on your normal yard waste collection day.

Loose leaf collection will resume Monday, Sept. 28.
