When available, mulch can be loaded at 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday thru Friday — please note mulch is only loaded at these times and not throughout the day. Mulch is not available on rainy days. All trucks and trailers must have side walls and be covered (example: with a tarp) before leaving the yard. For mulch availability, call Public Works at 336-766-9170. These services are limited to Village of Clemmons residents, and you may be asked to show ID.

Leaf collection is underway! The Village of Clemmons runs the leaf trucks continuously each week throughout the municipality. Leaf collection will continue until the volume dissipates. Further communication on an end date will be distributed. Leaves should be placed on the edge of your street. It is not possible to specify an exact day of the week for pickup.

Weather permitting, the Village of Clemmons will pick up Christmas trees that have been placed at the edge of residents’ yards beginning Monday, Jan. 9, for areas west of Lewisville-Clemmons Road and Middlebrook Drive, and starting Tuesday, Jan. 16, for areas east of Lewisville-Clemmons Road and Middlebrook Drive.
