This from the town of Garner:
Garner will be conducting a one-time sweep of residential areas to pick up and
dispose of storm-related yard waste debris beginning Monday, Sept. 12. All materials intended for disposal should be placed curbside no later than 7 a.m. that morning.
Residents are encouraged to use their regular weekly prepared yard waste services for pickup. However, if additional assistance is required due to size or volume, the town will pick up unprepared yard waste at the curbside during the one-time sweep. This special pickup is for yard waste only, and there will be no back-tracking. Note that, in accordance with town ordinance, contractor-generated debris is not eligible for either the special pickup or regular weekly collection.
Residents who take advantage of the regular weekly yard waste collection are reminded to follow certain rules. Limbs, hedge clippings or shrubs less than 1 1/2 inches in diameter should be tied in bundles not exceeding 4 feet in length or placed in clear plastic bags or a reusable container no larger than 32 gallons in size. There is a 60-pound weight limit for each bundle, bag or container.
Limbs larger than 1 1/2 inches in diameter need not be tied but should not exceed 4 feet in length and 60 pounds per piece. They should be placed with the large ends toward the street.
All yard waste debris should be placed behind the curb.
Residents are also reminded of the scheduled unprepared yard waste pickup coming at the end of October. The schedule can be found on customers’ recycling calendar or on the town’s website here.
