Curbside Recycling is Bigger & Better!

There is a new way to recycle more items!  You must register to receive a new 96-gallon cart.  The City will no longer pick up items placed in the old recycling bins.

Additional carts have been ordered and will be delivered in the next several weeks.

While you are waiting on your new cart to be delivered, please take your recyclables to one of the City's recycling centers:

  1. Police Dept. Parking Lot on Sharpe St.
  2. Statesville Fitness & Activity Center Parking Lot, 1875 Simonton Rd.

You will receive more information about single stream recycling when your cart is delivered.  This information is also on line. 

To determine if you live in a red week or blue week for recycling, please click here for the interactive map and follow instructions carefully.

But for now, register!

Are you placing your recycling cart on the curb correctly?  The cart needs to be as close to the curb as possible with the lid facing the street and the wheels and handles facing the house.  Please keep 3 feet of space clear around the cart.   Make sure there is 3 feet between the recycling cart and your garbage container, your mail box and your car, etc.  The lid needs to be closed! (or barely open)  Questions?  Call 704-878-3415.

Leaf crews are working in Area Two which is south of E. Broad St. and east of S. Center St.

Weather has caused a delay in leaf collection.  Crews will continue to work through the weekend in Area One (south of Front St. and west of S. Center St.) and move to Area Two (south of E. Broad St. and east of S. Center St.) during the week of Nov. 16.

If you live within a five-mile radius of the Statesville City limits and would like a truckload of leaves for mulch, please call 704-878-3415 to have them delivered.

In addition to reminding residents of the guidelines for curbside collection, the City is stressing the importance of keeping piles of leaves away from the recycling carts.  This is the first year of single stream recycling and to operate the automated recycling truck more efficiently, the blue recycling cart must be at least 3 feet away from any objects, including a pile of leaves.
