Town of Wadesboro announces trash pick-up changes

May 21, 2014

WADESBORO — After 6 months of discussion and public input, the town of Wadesboro is reducing curbside trash pick-up 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 on June 30. Customers who currently receive trash service Monday and Thursday will now have trash service only on Monday. In comparison, customers who currently receive trash service Tuesday and Friday will now have trash service only on Wednesday. Uptown customers who received trash service every day will now have trash service only on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.


The new guidelines are designed for efficient pick-up with minimum disruptions to the customer. Customers now have two options. First, customers can place out bagged trash in up to four containers totaling 128 gallons. Alternatively, customers can place out up to four 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.


Please see the town website (www.cityofwadesboro.org) or call City Hall at 704-694-5171 for more details. The town apologizes for any inconvenience.
