Loose Leaf Collection


Jamestown Loose Leaf Collection Program

October 23, 2023 to February 23, 2024

The Town of Jamestown’s annual Leaf Collection Program begins October 23rd, 2023 and will end on February 23rd, 2024. The program provides residents with the opportunity to have loose leaves collected at roadside without the need of bagging. The program is operated on a routing system that is based on our staff completing one leaf collection route of the town in approximately 3 to 4 weeks. Once a route is completed, then staff returns to the beginning of the same planned route and begins again. To participate in the Leaf Collection Program simply:

  • Rake leaves to the edge of your yard behind the curb.
  • Remove sticks, rocks, and other debris which can damage the Town's equipment. If staff encounters debris in the leaf pile, they will not continue collection at the property.
  • Do not park vehicles on, in front of, or near your leaves.

The leaf collection program helps keep leaves from blocking storm drains and prevents decaying leaves from polluting lakes and streams.

In addition to the collection program, residents are encouraged to recycle their leaves by composting or shredding them and using them as fertilizer for lawns and gardens. You can also use leaves as mulch to protect plants and shrubs. For more information on mulching or composting leaves, call the Guilford County Cooperative Extension Service at (336) 375-5876.

Jamestown residents can also use the Town’s year-round yard waste pickup for leaves. Simply put your leaves in a Town approved container and set them at the curb on the regular yard waste collection day.

The leaf collection route may change or be delayed due to inclement weather. The program does not service private streets.

If you are interested in receiving collected leaves, contact Town Hall at (336) 454-1138 for consideration. In order to receive leaves, you must:

  • have a clear dump site for the leaves
  • have clear access and egress for the leaf truck
  • be able to receive 25 cubic yards (approximately 3 to 4 tons) of wet or dry leaves
  • understand the leaf loads may have contaminants
  • accept the loads at no charge
