Did you know that leaf collection season is between October 15 and March 15? Fort Mill’s Public Works Department collects leaves with its fully automated vacuum truck on normal garbage collection days during this timeframe.
Customers can place leaves in a pile curbside, taking care not to block traffic or storm drains. Place sticks and branches in a separate pile from leaves to avoid clogging the collection truck’s vacuum tube. The sticks and branches will be picked up by a different truck.
Customers can also place bagged leaves curbside during leaf collection season, but they must be kept separate from any piles of loose leaves.
Between March 16 and October 14, all leaves must be bagged and placed curbside to be collected on regularly scheduled garbage collection days. For specific questions, contact Public Works at (803) 547-7158.
