Fall is here and the foliage in Cary looks great. The question is what to do with all of those leaves once Sandy has passed through and has filled your front and back yards with wet nasty versions of those beautiful leaves? Luckily the Town of Cary comes by each area throughout the months of November, December, and January at least once to clean up loose leaves starting November 5th. All you have to is rake them to the curb, avoid fire hydrants and mail boxes and they will be taken care of. Here is a link to a map that shows when they will be in your area. Loose Collection Map
Now, if Sandy unfortunately causes you to lose a few branches or bushes those too can be picked up. The Town of Cary asks a few things their residents:
- Place yard waste at the curb by 7 a.m. on your regular collection day
- Place yard waste in reusable containers with handles (maximum 32 gallon container, 25 pounds each), paper bags, or securely tied bundles.
- Limbs must be less than 4 feet in length and less than 4 inches in diameter.
- The maximum volume of curbside yard waste for regular collection at each home on one day cannot exceed 240 cubic feet (8 feet long by 5 feet wide by 6 feet tall) of tied bundles.
Enjoy your weekend and happy raking.
