Leaf Collection

 

2017-2018 Curbside Leaf Collection Information

Curbside Leaf Collection Schedule for the week of:

Nov. 6-10: Section 3 (east of N. Center St. and north of E. Broad St.)
Because of this week's rain - trucks will remain in Section 3 Nov. 13-17

Each Fall the City of Statesville provides curbside leaf collection using special equipment to pick up loose leaves placed on the curb.  The collection is done in sections:

Section 1 (west of S. Center St./Shelton Ave. and south of W. Broad/W. Front Streets)

Section 2 (east of S. Center St./Shelton Ave. and south of E. Broad St.)

Section 3 (east of N. Center St. and north of E. Broad St.)

Section 4 (west of N. Center St. and north of W. Broad/W. Front Streets)

Weekly notification of where the trucks are working is posted on the city government channel on cable channel 20, on the City's website, Facebook page and reported during the Sunday Night Hello Statesville call.

Loose leaves can be raked and piled on the curb. A city ordinance prohibits loose leaves from extending into the street or onto sidewalks so as to impede traffic. The leaves should not cover water meters or fire hydrants.

The city cannot collect loose leaves that contain limbs, debris and other materials. Ideally, leaves bagged, boxed, or placed in a container are the easiest to collect.

Leaves and yard debris should not be in the same container with regular trash items. These are collected and disposed of separately.

The leaf crews cover the entire city before returning to an area. Leaves are not picked up on the same schedule as the garbage and recycling collection schedules. Temporary workers are hired during leaf season to make sure that no sanitation services are affected by the leaf collection. An area is served about three times during a four-month period.

Citizens are asked to please rake leaves to the curb by 7 am on Monday to ensure collection.

To serve Statesville residents efficiently, the City is divided into four sections with leaf collection schedules for each. Weather, work load, and holidays may alter the schedule.
