New Bern's leaf & limb pickup is a once-per-week curbside collection service. 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. We also dispose of holiday trees once all lights and decorations have been removed. Please visit our Residential Collection Guidelines page & Route Map Schedule to find out how you can participate.
The Streets Division operates litter vacuum machines throughout the city on a daily basis 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.
