Yard Waste Update

Yard Waste Crews at Work

SANITATION UPDATE - THINGS TO KNOW:

Garbage pick-up  is on a regular schedule. Crews are going out earlier which means residents should put their carts on the curb the night before. Garbage items should be tied up in bags inside the cart.

Recycling is on a regular schedule. You can see what week it is on the website calendar (homepage) or click here. This might be a good time to register for the Hello Statesville Sunday night calls. 704-878-3583 or online HERE.

As a reminder, the City is no longer collecting glass items in the recycling cart. You must place them in the trash. Do not place your recyclables in plastic bags.

Yard Waste collection is continuing. Crews have gotten behind due to the large amount of yard work and storm debris being placed on the curb. Typically, yard waste is picked up the same day as your regular garbage. Hopefully, we will be back on that schedule after next week.

Important to remember:
• Limbs must be 4 ft. in length or less. And the pile of yard debris should be no larger than 2 cubic yards (3’x3’x3’)
• It is helpful for yard debris to be placed in a large container. Place debris on the curb, not in the street, and away from power lines, low hanging limbs and other obstacles.
• Leaves must be placed in a bag.
• The City will pick up appliances (not TVs and computers)
• The City doesn’t pick up construction debris.
• If you have a professional landscaper/tree trimmer do the work, they are responsible for hauling off the debris.

Call 704-878-3415 or email krankins@statesvillenc.net for additional information.
