Put Your Leaves on the Curb Yet?
Picking up leaves can be a pain, so make sure you don't miss the local leaf pickup schedule! The best way to take care of your leaves is to either blow them to the curb with a blower, or pile them all onto a canvas and then get someone to help you lug it down to the street. You'll want to dump your leaves just inside the curb. Actually, officially they're not supposed to end up on the street, but in our experience we haven't seen anyone put them on the curb and not on the street. Probably because if the wet leaves sit on your grass for too long they'll kill it.
Winston-Salem Leaf Routes and Pickup Schedule
The city of Winston-Salem has a helpful section on their website dedicated to leaf pickup. You can see not only when leaves are picked up in your particular quadrant, but you'll have access to order a new yard can, as well as see which rounds of leaves have already been collected. We were unable to find an upcoming schedule of when leaves will be picked up, but you can call City Link at (336)727-8000 to find out.
