How do I dispose of yard waste?

The Public Works department offers weekly curbside yard waste removal each Wednesday to Swansboro residents in city limits. Tree limbs up to 6 inches in diameter and 8 feet in length can be placed curbside for collection and they do not have to be bundled and tied. All loose refuse (for example, leaves, grass clippings, and the like) are still required to be placed in outdoor leaf and lawn style paper bags. If you need assistance due to a disability, please contact the Public Works office at (910)326-4428. Please note, holiday’s may sometimes affect this schedule.

As of 5/31/2023 – The Town is under a temporary yard waste restriction until further notice due to equipment complications. Please only place small loads/items that can be picked up by hand. Bundling limbs in lengths 6 feet or less is requested. Please make other arrangements to dispose of larger yard waste items.
