Leaf (Grass) & Limb (Mulch) Program

In 2007, the Village of Clemmons began providing leaf, limb and grass pickup for the entire village. At the same time burning was banned.

Leaf Pick-Up Guidelines

  • Leaves and grass must be at the roadside on Monday morning by 7 a.m. on the scheduled week of pickup. If leaves or grass are put out after that time and the pickup has already been made on your street, you will have to wait until the next scheduled pickup for them to be removed.
  • Leaves and grass need to be placed close to the road, raked up on road edge, but not on road.
  • Leaves and grass must be in a wind row for equipment to vacuum up quickly, no large piles which are hand labor intensive.
  • Absolutely no twigs or sticks should be in leaves or grass.
  • No garden trimmings, tomato vines, corn stalks, flowers, or shrubs are allowed.
  • No bagging of leaves or grass.
  • No returns to pick up items that were put out late or improperly placed.

Limb Pick-Up

Limbs should be placed on the edge of your street by 7 a.m. on Monday morning of the following schedule between March and November.

Limb Pick-Up Guidelines

  • Limbs must be at the roadside on Monday morning by 7 a.m. on the scheduled week of pickup. If limbs are put out after that time and the pickup has already been made on your street, you will have to wait until the next scheduled pickup for them to be removed.
  • Limbs should be stacked in one pile with the large end toward the edge of the street, not randomly pitched.
  • Only green or fresh cut limbs can be picked up. Rotten wood will not process through the chipper.
  • No pickup can be made of yard waste, garden waste, raked up waste, flowers or any items that will not go through the chipper. Hedge trimmings can be accepted if they are placed on top of the limb pile.
  • Limbs should not be larger than 6 inches in diameter and no longer than 16 feet.
  • Only piles of brush, not twig piles, can be picked up.
  • Any foreign objects such as rocks, metal, lumber, etc. will contaminate pile and will keep the pile from being picked up.
  • Building materials cannot be picked up.
  • This service is for limb removal only. Taking away entire trees is not covered.
  • Multiple family dwellings/apartments must pay fees according to quantities.
  • There is no daily pickup schedule guarantee.
  • No returns to pick up items that were put out late or improperly placed
