At the City of High Point, we focus every day on enriching the lives of our citizens by creating an exceptional environment and providing exemplary services that enable our community to thrive and prosper. In achieving this, we offer curbside/backdoor collection assistance to individuals who, because of permanent or temporary physical disability, are unable to bring their garbage and recycling carts to the curb. We limit this level of service to those who do not share a residence with someone who could bring the carts to the curb on their behalf.
As part of the program, City of High Point crews will collect garbage and recycling from either the back/side yard area of your home. It is imperative that the service is provided only to qualified residents and there are no obstructions that would prevent us from performing this task safely.
An application is required and you may contact the Customer Service Center to receive an application by calling (336) 883-3111. Please note your application will not be considered complete without a physician's signature on their office letterhead.

The City's yard waste program is intended for the regular maintenance of a property, not the removal of an entire tree(s) or lot clearing. Yard waste must be separated from your regular garbage, recycling or bulk pile. Yard waste material includes grass clippings, leaves, bush trimmings and limbs from regular maintenance work/pruning. A City of High Point Yard Waste cart may be purchased for $70. Please call 336-883-3111 for more information or to purchase a cart.
Please do not mix your yard waste with non-yard waste materials (rock, dirt and fencing material). Your yard waste must be placed in a City of High Point Toter, bundled, or bagged (if bagged, you must use paper bags). If bagged the item cannot weigh over 50 pounds and must hold contents.

No, the city no longer collects large, loose, untied tree limbs placed at the curb. Any work performed by a tree service company must be disposed of by that company. A homeowner has 3 options for the removal of a large quantity of limbs and tree debris:
1 - Cut and tie to appropriate size and weight for the city to remove for free on the normal collection day.
2 - If this is your personal residence you may take limbs to the Ingleside Composting Facility (Located at 3001 Ingleside Drive) for free.
3 - Rent a 14 cubic yard Red Box ($150 for 3 days) by calling Customer Service at 336-883-3111.
This could be for a number of reasons. The driver should have marked a box explaining why. It may have something to do with the condition of your cart. Or - it may be that the limbs are not cut to the appropriate size or weight. We ask that you follow the guidelines for proper removal. Violations may result in fine(s) being charged. In either case, you may call Customer Service at 336-883-3111 to request a call back about your orange tag and what we can do to help you better understand.
