First North Shore
Stick Pick-Up
March 27th, 2023

Hello Neighbors,

We are pleased to announce that the North Shore Stick Pick-Up program is back again this year using Bobby Branch.

Homeowners seemed to be pleased with the job Bobby did last year. He will bring his dump truck with a 20’ trailer and will use a small Bob Cat type vehicle to pick up the debris for deposit into his dump truck.  He will also rake the area and blow off that section, if appropriate. Nothing longer than 6 feet and the smaller the better.

If you hire someone to do landscaping, they are required to dispose of the debris. No piles or bags sitting near the road  for weeks which can lead to a fine. 

What Bobby’s team WILL pick up:

  • Fallen tree limbs (homeowner needs to break into 6-foot sections)
  • Sticks and small amounts of bush clippings

What Bobby’s team WILL NOT pick up:

  • Cut down trees
  • Massive trimmings of many, if not all, trees and bushes on your property (by homeowner or landscaper)
  • Construction debris
  • Household trash
  • Leaves, pine cones, lawn clippings
  • Material in bags (the Resource Center charges Bobby extra for bag handling)

Pick up Dates for 2023:

March 27 June 26 Sept 25 Dec 4th

Homeowners and renters have options (at your expense). If you are unable to prepare for these dates or you have 

too much yard waste for the purpose of this program:

  1. You may take your yard waste directly to: 

Lee County Resource Management Facility at 331 Landfill Road in Lemon Springs (919-499-2312)

They don’t charge much (by the pound) and you can pick up some free mulch at the same time.

In order to maintain the character of our neighborhood, please do not put out stick piles until a week prior to the pick-up date.  Also note that dumping any debris on the lot owned by someone else or on common property is a violation of North Carolina General Statute 14-399 and could result in fines of up to not less than $500 to $2,000 and 24 to 100 hours of community service.
