Every two weeks. Please check the calendar.
What can I recycle?
Please check out the Recycle Pamphlet page.
What holidays does the Public Works observe?
All major holidays. New Years, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas to name a few. Please reference the calendar, and we will post on the web site what days we will be off and the days your services will be done.
What if my garbage or recycle can is cracked or broken?
The workers will check over your can to asses the damage. If they feel like your can will no longer work we will replace it for you.
When is my brush pick-up?
Brush pick-up is not a set scheduled task. We try to run the trucks everyday, and we start around the main town area and work our way around to everyone. Your brush should not lay there more than 7 working days, but please keep in mind that we do sometimes get backed-up.
When is leaf pick-up?
We run the leaf truck from October to April of the following year. You may also reference the calendar. Any leaves that you have outside of these months must be bagged up.
Will I be charged for extra debris pick-up?
We do have to charge for the pick-up of construction debris and household furniture that is placed on the curb. The landfill charges us an extra fee, so we have to charge. If you have something to be picked up, please contact Public Works at 828-287-5961. We will come out and asses what you have and give you a price for the pick-up.
Why did I not receive a call back from the Public Works?
If you did not receive a call back from someone, it could be that you did not leave a message. If you did leave a message, maybe you forgot to include your number. So when leaving a message, please leave your name, number, and a brief reason why you called and we will call you back.
