Yard Waste

Yard Waste Notifications

The yard waste notification form is now in a condensed interactive PDF format. You can now submit the form electronically through e-mail (a preferred and easy to process method), or by mailing in via hard copy format. Facilities larger than two acres in size must submit a permit application as required in 15A North Carolina Administrative Code 13B .1405. Forms on this page should only be filled out by facilities that meet the following criteria:

  • Are less than two (2) acres in size.
  • Do not process or store more than 6,000 cubic yards of waste and finished material per three month period.
  • Only accept what is considered €Type I waste (generally what is defined as yard waste). Yard waste is defined in G.S. 130A-290 as yard trash and land clearing debris which includes stumps, limbs, leaves, grass, and untreated wood. NOTE: leaves are considered to be yard trash€. Up to 30 cubic yards of separated leaves can be received on an annual basis without obtaining a yard waste notification.

All forms on this page are .pdf files, and require at least Adobe Reader 8.0 to open. Adobe Reader is free to download and available on the web at: http://get.adobe.com/reader/.

If you see this when clicking on a form:

Simply download the file to your computer before opening. Some browsers are unable to handle pdf forms, this doesn't mean the form is broken.
