Yard Waste Collection
COVID-19 Update: Due to staff shortages and heavier workloads, yard waste collection may be delayed. Crews are working as efficiently as possible to collect as much of their routes as possible.
Yard Waste collection is performed by the Town of Apex Public Works & Transportation Department personnel for residential customers and occurs the business day following garbage and recycling collection.
On occasion, weekly collection is not possible, due to these reasons:
- Inclement weather (this includes periods of heavy rain)
- Holidays (yard waste collection workers are town employees, and get 11 paid holidays)
- High Demand (especially from Oct-Dec during peak leaf season)

In an effort to divert inappropriate materials from Wake County landfills, the Town of Apex encourages the use of compost bins to help residents dispose of yard waste.
