The City of Statesville has adopted a policy by which a residential property owner may elect to no longer receive City solid waste services.  If approved, the property would be exempted from the City's solid waste fee ($120 annually)

UPDATE: The opting out of the solid waste fee by some property owners has affected more than 100 residential properties.  These properties will no longer receive Statesville City sanitation services (garbage pick-up, recycling pick-up, curbside leaf and yard waste collection and bulky item pick-up). 

City Sanitation crews are currently picking up Statesville-issued garbage and recycling containers from these addresses and instructing the residents to contact their landlords for information on future solid waste services.
