Yard Waste Management Facilities

N.C. State Law (130A-309.10(F) 3) prohibits the disposal of yard waste (e.g, leaves, grass clippings, tree limbs, brush, untreated wood, etc.) in sanitary landfills. Therefore, the Utilities Department operates 2 permanent yard waste drop-off and processing sites, Overdale Yard Waste Facility at 4010 Old Milwaukee Lane in Winston-Salem and Forum 52 Yard Waste Facility at 180 Northstar Drive in Rural Hall. Both of these facilities, operated by a contractor, Wallace Farm, accept yard waste and landscaping debris from the general public, private companies and the City Sanitation yard waste collection crews throughout the year.

Yard waste, exclusive of loose leaves, received at both facilities is ground and then transported to the contractor’s permitted composting facility in Davie County. Loose leaves delivered to the Forum 52 Yard Waste Facility are composted and distributed free of charge to the general public in the spring of each year.
