Register now for the weekly calls and make sure you don't miss out on important notifications.

Don't miss out on important news and announcements from the City of Statesville.

Register to get the weekly call from the City telling residents about garbage schedules, upcoming programs, recycling weeks and lots more.  The calls come on Sunday nights at 7 p.m.

The list is also used to communicate with residents with important Statesville-specific events or emergencies are taking place.  This call-out system was used during the recent water emergency and we discovered that a lot of folks are not registered.

RECEIVE THESE CALLS: If you would like to receive these Sunday night calls or emergency notices,
register online by clicking here:

The Caller ID number is 980-829-0100. If you call this number, you will be prompted to enter your  area code and phone number in order to hear the original recording.

We switched systems July 1 and, unfortunately, lost some of the previous contact information.  Please re-register if you have stopped getting the calls.

If you have questions about the message or the call-out system, call 704-878-3586 and someone will call you back. (be sure to leave your number)


Iredell County switched to Hyper-Reach Communications System to provide notifications for local emergencies, alerts and weather alerts.  Take time to sign up for that service and encourage your friends to register.  It will notify you with more general emergency information.

For the County System: SIGN UP HERE.

For the week of Dec. 12, leaf trucks will be in Area Four, north of W. Front and west of N. Center.

PLEASE do not place leafs on your water meter!

The leaf collection schedule will be posted on the City's website, Facebook page and cable channel 20.  Residents are also notified of the schedule each Sunday night with a phone call.

Sign up to receive the Sunday night call from the City.

Residents are reminded to keep piles of leaves away from their recycling and trash carts.  Because of the automated trucks being used, the carts must be at least three feet away from any objects, including a pile of leaves.

Other guidelines include:

Loose leaf piles may not extend into the street or onto the sidewalk.  This causes a dangerous situation when traffic has to move into a different lane or a pedestrian has to step into the street to avoid the leaves.

The leaf piles must be free of trash, limbs, rocks, and other yard waste.  The equipment is built for leaf collection only.

Residents have the option to bag their leaves which will be removed with other yard waste items.  Yard waste (i.e., grass clippings, limbs) can be mixed with leaves if they are placed in a bag.

Remove all vehicles and other obstructions from the curb area that may  prevent the leaf collection equipment access to the leaves.

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.

If you have questions about leaf collection, call 704-878-3415 or email.
