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.

The City of Statesville has released its 2015 Water Quality Report and results show the City's drinking water meets or exceeds every health standard developed by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Statesville’s Water Quality Report is prepared by the City's Water Resources Department to meet the EPA's National Primary Drinking Water Regulation for Consumer Confidence Reports (CCR). It details drinking water sources, the testing methodology, the substances detected in the water and the levels of those substances.  

Hard copies can be obtained by calling 704-878-3441.

The report gives the background on Statesville’s water system, explains the testing and many of the terms used in the information, and provides many charts.

The City draws its source water from the Catawba River Basin on Lookout Shoals Lake (pictured above) and the South Yadkin River.
