Week of Dec. 10: Area Three, moving into Area Four

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.  Bags 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 –; on Facebook -; 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 or click here

Area Two:  south of E. Broad St. and east of S. Center St./Shelton Ave.
Area Three:  north of E. Broad St. and east  of N. Center St.
Area Four: north of W. Front St. and west of N. Center St.


  • Place leaves in front of your residence on the edge of the yard and curb; NOT IN THE STREET.
  • Do not block sidewalks.
  • Do not mix other debris (brush, limbs, trash, etc.) with the leaves.
  • Do not place leaves within three feet of other obstacles (parked vehicles, trees, mailboxes, fire hydrants, utility poles, etc.)
  • Do not place leaves on top of water meters.
  • Bagged leaves should not be mixed with other yard debris or trash items.  Place bags on the curb for pick-up.
  • Residents are responsible for having their leaves on the curb by 7 a.m. on the Monday of their scheduled pickup period. Crews will not return to a street once it is completed until the next rotation.


  • Utilize a mulching lawnmower and mulch leaves back into the lawn, providing nutrients for the soil.
  • Place leaves in and around plant beds and under trees and shrubs for good soil nutrients and plant insulation.


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.

Updated information as of 12-9-18 at 6 p.m.  No Garbage Pick-up On Monday!

City crews have been working throughout the day, clearing the main thoroughfares, city parking lots and areas around the hospitals and fire stations.

Only one power outage was reported today in the Park Drive area and power was restored quickly.

There have been dozens of calls for service due to motorists having difficulties traveling on roads.  Please do not get out on the roads unless you have to.  If you do have to get out, drdive slow and plan for much longer stopping distances.  Also take supplies you might need in the event you become stranded, i.e., charged cell phone, blankets.  Expect slippery roads because of black ice.

To see road conditions in other areas, check out the NCDOT’s site for real-time conditions and incidents. TIMS 

The Statesville Regional Airport is open. 
Check back on the City's operating hours for Monday.

NO GARBAGE PICK-UP ON MONDAY - A revised schedule will be posted Monday.

The crews work a priority list of streets: major highways and main arteries through town, roads leading to the hospital, fire and police station entrances, followed by collector roads, side roads and cul-de-sacs in that order.

Sometimes, snow removal efforts are suspended if reduced visibility makes plow operation unsafe, or if temperatures drop below 23-24 degrees.  (Trucks are essentially smoothing over ice.) 

Sand trucks are called out to spread sand on overpasses, bridges, exit ramps and other major inclines where ice can form. 

And stay connected.  For up-to-date information:
