Chapel Hill Transit Needs Your Input!
The Chapel Hill Transit service area is continuing to grow and how people get around is changing. Building on past planning work, Chapel Hill Transit is conducting a Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP) that will service as a roadmap for the next 10 years and position the system for continued future success. This plan is being developed in coordination with similar short range transit planning efforts being undertaken by Orange Public Transportation and GoTriangle.

Leaf Collection Has Ended
The last loose leaf collection for this season has been completed by Town of Chapel Hill public works crews. If you still have leaves to be collected, place them in yard waste carts or other rigid containers for curbside collection. Yard waste roll carts may be purchased from the Public Works Department (919-969-5100). Crews can collect yard waste and leaves in paper yard waste bags. Please note that yard waste crews cannot collect yard waste in plastic bags.
Loose leaf collection will begin again in mid-October.
An alternative to disposal of leaves and yard waste through the Town collection program is backyard composting. Information on home composting is available at https://composting.ces.ncsu.edu, http://www.orangecountync.gov/departments/solid_waste_management/mulch_and_compost.php or http://carolinacompost.com, or call the N.C. Botanical Garden (919-962-0522), Orange County Agriculture Extension Agents (919-245-2050) or Orange Community Recycling (919-968-2788).
