The MCAC Leadership team is a group of citizens that are currently serving as MCAC committee chairs or officers, have formerly served as officers, or who are just interested in being involved!  The group is OPEN and welcomes anyone. We communicate through a google group that any MCAC resident is welcomed to join. Please email Dana at if you would like to sign up.

It's Leaf Collection Time!

The final round of leaf collection for Zone 8 (East Mordecai, Oakdale, Oakwood) is currently underway. Those living west of Wake Forest Rd (Mordecai, Capital Park, Pilot Mill) have not been scheduled yet but will likely be end of January.

Christmas trees should go out with regular yard waste pick up.

Curbside Grease Collection Runs through Jan. 15

It’s that time of year again! Lots of holiday cooking means lots of extra kitchen grease and the City of Raleigh is ready to help keep that grease out of the drain. Through Jan. 15, 2019, residents and places of worship can leave used cooking oil curbside and the City will collect it at no charge.

Here’s how: Call 919-996-3245 to arrange for grease pickup at the curb; Place cooled grease in a sealable clear plastic container; Label it “used cooking oil”; and Place it at the curb the same day as your regular garbage pickup.

Seasonal grease collection protects the environment by keeping cooking grease out of the City’s sewer system, preventing sewer overflows. It’s also an important recycling effort --collected grease is converted to biofuel, a renewable source of energy used to power vehicles, heat homes, and cook food.
More information: curbside grease collection or call the Raleigh Customer Support Center at 919-996-3245.
