HOW LOOSE LEAF COLLECTION WORKS:

The City is divided into four geographical areas.  Each area will be collected a minimum of three times during the 12-week collection period.  Every street will be collected one time during each of the three separate pickups.  Residents must place their leaves on the curb prior to their scheduled pickup date.  Crews will not return to a street once it is completed until the next rotation.

THE SCHEDULE:

The crews move through the zones quicker during the first weeks of the collection period.  Once the majority of the leaves fall, it can take five to eight days for a crew to complete an area.  It is important for residents to check the schedule regularly to note any changes in the schedule because of weather, equipment issues and quantity of leaves.

Bagged leaves are typically collected faster than loose leaves.  Bag are available for purchase (10 for $1) at the Statesville Customer Service counter, 301 S. Center St.

The loose leaf pick-up schedule is available on the City’s website – www.statesvillenc.net; on Facebook - www.facebook.com/CityofStatesville/; Twitter - @cityofsvl; Spectrum Cable government channel 20.  The Hello Statesville Sunday night calls will also have updated information each week.  You can register to receive these recorded calls by calling 704-878-3583.
