Curbside Leaf Recycling Coming Soon

 The City of Southlake, in partnership with Keep Southlake Beautiful and Duncan Disposal, is pleased to offer a third round of curbside leaf recycling this winter. The Leaf Recycling Program gives citizens the opportunity to place their bagged leaves on the curb and have them picked up for recycling rather than ending up in the landfill. During the last two Leaf Recycling Programs, Southlake residents put green in their routine, exceeding expectations. Through the course of the two years, Southlake residents bagged and recycled over 360 tons of leaves!

It is important to participate in this program because the leaves that accumulate in and around a landscape represent a valuable natural resource that can be used to provide landscaped areas with a good source of organic matter and nutrients.

This year, the City of Southlake challenges residents to continue to put green in their routine and exceed the 170 tons of leaves that were recycled last year!

Curbside Leaf Pickup Dates:

  • November 17
  • December 1
  • December 15
  • January 5 (2011)

To Participate: 

  • Place bagged leaves at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on designated collection days.
  • Bagged leaves should be placed at the curb physically separated from other solid waste.
  • Any type of bag may be used.
