Seasonal Loose-Leaf Collection

The City of Raleigh provides collection and proper disposal of unwanted loose leaves as a service to its residents. The equipment used is outfitted with large vacuums which lift and deposit the leaves into dump boxes mounted on the trucks and are then hauled away when full. This seasonal service supplements the weekly, year-round Yard waste Program provided by the Solid Waste Services Department. The next leaf collection for Hedingham is December 18th.

To ensure collection, please have leaves prepared by 7AM on December 18. Loose leaf piles should be placed behind the curb or edge of pavement without blocking the sidewalk. For more information on preparing for the loose-leaf collection, visit the City of Raleigh's Website

Information concerning the Yard waste Program can be obtained by calling the Solid Waste Services Department at 919-996-3245 or visiting the Solid Waste Services Department webpage.

Door-to-Door Solicitations

The Management Office has received many complaints in recent weeks about the number of solicitors going door to door in the community. When questioned the solicitors state that they have permission to solicit in the community. NO ONE or company has been given permission to do any kind of solicitation or door-to-door sales in Hedingham.

According to the Raleigh Police Department (RPD), the community has No Soliciting signs, but unfortunately that is not enforceable by law. It is essentially a request on behalf of the community as a whole. Their recommendation is a No Trespassing sign on your front door. If they still come to your door, you can ask them to leave immediately. If they do not, call the police. They can only enforce trespassing if they are still on your property. RPD did say that they will come out here to have a chat with them if their behavior becomes unruly, but the Officer recommended calling the businesses to file complaints as a community if they are a problem.

If you have any information on who the solicitors are please contact the Hedingham Management Office at 919-231-9050, ext. 24 or email at and Management will attempt to contact the company or individual and request that they cease any further activity in Hedingham.

Away with Geese

"Away with Geese" has been installed and is a new method to deter the Geese in our lake. These devices are a simple, compact, and maintenance free way to control the Geese on lakes and ponds, effectively eliminating problems of droppings, and damage brought by nesting geese.

Unlike other methods used to deter geese, such as: chemical sprays, physical barriers, noise devices, trained dogs, and hunting, Away With Geese has no adverse effects on its environment or humans. The device is comprised of a solar powered light that flashes once every two seconds, mounted on a flotation device, which is anchored to the bottom of the lake. The flashing device is designed to disrupt the geese just enough to make them uncomfortable, and the end result, according to studies, is that they will fly to another location.

Blue Recycle Bins

The first six months of the 2017 pick-up schedule for the blue recycle bins is listed below. Be sure to place them at the curb with at least 3 feet in between them to allow room for the arms on the truck to safely pick each bin up, and do not forget to store both bins behind the front line of your residence.

Collection schedules are subject to change. To verify any last minute changes, contact the Solid Waste Hotline at 919-996-6194, or call Solid Waste Services Customer Support at 919-996-6890.
