FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, January 31, 2014

Contact: Charita Curtis, Solid Waste Services
704-532-3538, ccurtis@charlottenc.gov

Due to inclement weather, Solid Waste Services is operating on a delayed collections schedule. Residents scheduled for recycling collection this week are advised to keep their rollout carts curbside until they are serviced on Saturday, February 1.  Garbage and bulky waste collections for this week will be completed by Friday afternoon, January 31. Yard waste collection continues to be suspended for the remainder of the week and will resume on a regular schedule on Monday, February 3.

Residents are reminded of the following tips to ensure collection:

  • Bag all garbage before placing it in the garbage rollout cart. Do not overfill the cart.

  • Remove food/liquid residue and lids from all recyclable containers before placing them in the recycling cart. Do not bag recyclables.

  • Trimmings from shrubs and trees must be no longer than five feet in length and no larger than four inches in diameter.

  • Place leaves in untied plastic bags or uncovered trash cans (not City-issued carts).

  • Place collection materials curbside by 6:30 am on collection day. Rollout carts must be removed from curbside by midnight the same day.

  • Place collection items within six feet of the curb. Please do not block the sidewalk.
