CHARLOTTE – The City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services will not collect garbage, recyclables, yard waste and bulky items on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22. Residents who normally receive service on Thursday will be serviced on Friday, November 23. Residents who normally receive service on Friday will be serviced on Saturday, November 24.
With autumn in full swing, residents are reminded to properly prepare leaves and other yard waste for collection. A few tips include:
• Place leaves in untied plastic bags or uncovered trash cans (not City-issued rollout carts). Leaves may also be placed in biodegradable paper bags for collection
• Cut limbs, logs and brush to no more than 5 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter
• Separate yard waste into piles small enough for one person to handle.
After items are properly prepared, place them curbside no later than 6:30 am on your scheduled collection day. Please do not block the sidewalk with collection items.
