Leaf and Limb Information
New Bern's leaf & limb pickup is a once-per-week curbside collection service and residents are asked to place their yard debris out on the premises near the street curb-line or right-of-way on which the residential property fronts . We pick up bagged leaves, limbs (no larger than 5' 5") and white & brown goods from residences within city limits so you don't have to! This service benefits local recycling efforts and helps keep New Bern clean and litter-free. We also dispose of holiday trees once all lights and decorations have been removed. Please visit our Residential Collection Guidelines page to find out how you can participate. How do you know when your scheduled pickup is?

The Streets Division operates litter vacuum machines throughout the city often to help drive home the message “Bear in Mind in New Bern...If you Litter You Lose.” This machine collects litter along curbed rights-of-ways and provides cleanup assistance for special events sponsored by the City of New Bern.
The Streets Division also operates the loose-leaf vacuum machines only during the months of November, December, January and February. To find out which zone you're in, click here. For a calendar of pickup days for your area, click here or call Public Works at (252)639-7501.
