Proper placement for curbside trash and recycling collection is incredibly important to ensure your carts get emptied.  We need your cooperation to increase our efficiency and decrease your frustration!

There are changes in our collection guidelines because of the move to automated trash collection.  Yes, we are occasionally using non-automated trucks for trash collection, but we are asking residents to ALWAYS place your carts on the curb in the following manner:

  • Place your City-issued garbage and recycling carts a few inches from the curb or edge of the street (NOT IN THE STREET) with the wheels facing your house and the lid opening into the street.
  • Do not place the carts on the sidewalk. Use the space closest to the curb without blocking the sidewalk.
  • Keep your garbage and recycling carts three feet apart and at least 3 feet from any obstacles such as mailboxes, cars, utility poles, etc.  No items should be placed up against the carts.
  • All trash items should be bagged and placed in the container so that the lid will close.  Do not overfill your container.
  • All recyclable items should be loose in the container so that the lid will close. Do not overfill your container.
  • Do not put other containers (including boxes, bags) on the curb for collection.  If you need a second container, call 704-878-3415 to purchase one for $61.25. Only City-issued carts will be emptied.
  • The City will pick up old furniture, stoves, refrigerators, water heaters, mattresses and yard waste by appointment.  Notify Sanitation by calling 704-878-3415.  PLACE THESE ITEMS ON THE CURB 3 FEET FROM YOUR RECYCLING AND GARBAGE CARTS.
  • If you are using your old cart for yard waste, please call 704-878-3415 to ask for a GREEN STICKER to identify it as your yard waste cart.
  • Place your carts on the curb the night before your collection day and keep them on the curb if it hasn't been collected at the end of the day.  Sometimes the timing of our arrival changes, and we don’t' want to miss you if we come later or earlier than expected.  On those rare occasions when something goes wrong, please call 704-878-3415 to report a missed pick-up.  Once your containers have been emptied, please remove them from the curb as soon as possible.

GREEN TAGS - If we leave a green tag on your cart, please read it carefully to learn why your garbage was not collected or other issues with your collection that day.  Questions? please call 704-878-3415.

Leaf collection has suspended until weather improves 

Current Leaf Collection Schedule: Updated Jan. 11, 2018
JANUARY SCHEDULE (Dates are subject to change due to weather and equipment)

Rainfall has slowed down the collection of leaves at the end of the week - Crews will finish up in Area Two (Specifically, Country Club and Brookmeade areas) the week of Jan. 15 before moving into Area Three (neighborhoods north of E. Broad St. west to N. Center St.)

Week of Jan. 8: Area Two (South of E. Broad St. and east of S. Center St./Shelton Ave.)
Week of Jan. 15: Area Two (South of E. Broad St. and east of S. Center St./Shelton Ave.) 
Week of Jan. 22: Area Three (North of E. Broad St. and east of N. Center St.) 

Thank you for your patience as the leaf trucks work their way through the City.  Because most of the leaves fell at one time this year, crews are having to stay in an area for longer than usual.  Except for the Christmas holidays, crews have been working six days a week since Thanksgiving.  Residents who bag their leaves will typically see quicker collection times, since bagged leaves can be collected by the weekly yard waste service.

The schedule will be updated weekly on cable channel 20, Facebook, the website and announced on the Sunday night call-out. Please remember that weather does affect the pick-up of leaves - so check back often for new updates.

Winter Weather Updates:  Updated Wednesday, January 17, at 8 p.m.  (Check back for updates)

Plowing has stopped for the night and will resume Thursday as temperatures rise.  The sand trucks are responding to trouble spots as needed. 

City offices and the Statesville Fitness and Activity Center will open Thursday at 10 a.m.

GARBAGE ROUTES: The tentative plan is to run Tuesday and Wednesday routes on Thursday; Thursday and Friday routes on Friday.  This schedule may be changed depending on how early the trucks can start running.  Check back for updates.

Leaf collection is canceled until weather improves.  Once conditions thaw enough to resume loose leaf collection, all leaf equipment will be utilized.

The Statesville Regional Airport is open.

Because of treacherous driving conditions, residents are advised to stay off the roads until temperatures get high enough to dry up any moisture on the roads.

If you must drive:  reduce your speed and increase your following distance; avoid using cruise control in snowy or icy conditions – you want as much control of your car as possible; be cautious on bridges and overpasses as they are commonly the first areas to become icy; avoid passing snow plows and sand trucks. The drivers can have limited visibility, and the road in front of them could be worse than the road behind.

Emergency Numbers:
Police, Fire, Medical Emergency:  911
Vehicle off the road or involved in an accident without injuries:  704-878-3406
Power Outage:  704-878-3479
