Large Amounts of Yard Waste and Debris

Yard Waste
The Town will pick up large quantities of yard waste and debris for an additional fee.
  • This charge only applies to loads exceeding 2½ cubic yards, about the size of load a pickup truck can carry, or exceeding 50 lbs.
  • No additional fee is charged for lesser amounts of yard waste or other trash items.
  • The Town's fall/winter leaf collection and Christmas tree collection is free of charge.

How much will it cost?

  • There are three levels of charges based on the size of the trash load. For debris loads that are 2½ to less than 4 cubic yards in size, or heavier than 50 lbs., a $40 fee will be charged for pickup. For debris at 4 to 8 cubic yards, an $80 fee will be charged, and for debris greater than 8 cubic yards but less than 12 cubic yards, a $120 fee will be charged.
How to schedule collection
  • Any resident who has large quantities of yard waste or large trash items should call the Town's Public Works Department at (919) 552-5920 after placing the trash at the edge of the front yard, just behind the curb and off the street pavement.
  • The Public Works Department will give the resident an estimate of the amount that will be charged for a pickup, and the resident will then prepay for the collection at the Holly Springs Finance Department in Town Hall. 
  • After payment is made, the Town collect the trash, usually within 24 hours.

What if collection isn't scheduled?

  • If a large quantity of yard waste or bulky trash item is placed on a curb and the resident does not contact the Public Works Department or prepay for the trash pickup, a Public Works employee will place a notification on the resident's front door, alerting the resident of the Town's trash pickup policy and prepayment requirement. 
  • If the resident still does not call Public Works or make payment within five business days, the Town will collect the trash and add the corresponding fee to the resident's water bill.
