Trash Pickup Changes Effective 6/30/14
Starting June 30, 2014, trash pickup will be once a week. If your normal pickup day used to be Monday and Thursday, pickup for your location will now be Mondays only. If your normal pickup used to be Tuesday and Friday, pickup for your location will now be Wednesdays only. If a holiday falls on your pickup day, your trash pickup will be picked up the next day.
After 6 months of discussion and public input, the Town of Wadesboro is reducing curbside trash pickup service to once-per-week. Just like many in our community, the Town is faced with significant financial challenges. As a result, the Town must make tough decisions to responsibly manage public monies and to ensure quality public services are sustainable for the long-term.
The new service schedule will begin Monday, June 30, 2014. Customers who currently receive trash service Monday and Thursday will now have trash service only on Monday. Customers who currently receive trash service Tuesday and Friday will now have trash service only on Wednesday. Uptown customers who received trash service everyday will now have trash service only on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The new guidelines are designed for efficient pickup with minimum disruptions to the customer. Customers now have two options. First, customers can put out bagged trash in up to 4 containers totaling 128 gallons. Alternatively, customers can put out up to 4 trash bags without any container.
Under both options, up to 10 pieces of empty cardboard outside any container or bags will be picked up. Non-residential furniture pick-up is limited to 2 items per week. The trash fee will remain unchanged at $15 per month. All other sanitation services remain unchanged.
