Loose Leaf Collection Season

Dear City of Henderson Sanitation Customer:

The City of Henderson’s Loose Leaf Collection Season will begin the week of October 18, 2021 and will end January 14, 2022. During this period of time it is permitted to place rows or piles of loose leaves or pine straw at the roadside for the City’s Public Works Department to collect. Please note that rows or piles of loose leaves or pine straw shall:

  • Be placed behind the curb not to interfere with vehicular or pedestrian traffic.
  • Not be placed in an open ditch, gutter or street area as this can interfere with the City’s storm drainage system.
  • Be free of trash and debris such as glass, cans, rocks, limb cuttings, etc. as this may damage collection equipment.
  • Not be placed on top of your water meter.

Loose leaves and pine straw will generally be picked up on a two or three week rotation; however this is dependent on weather conditions and leaf accumulation. Please know you may continue to bag leaves or place them in a container during loose leaf season, however it is not required. Keep in mind, if leaves or pine straw are placed at the curb in loose form before loose leaf season begins and after loose leaf season ends, a $75.00 charge will be added to your sanitation bill. If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at 252-431-6115 or 252-431-6030.
