Heat Causing Solid Waste and Yard Waste Pickup Delays

Heat has significantly impacted the readiness of our solid waste and yard waste trucks. As a result, we haven’t had enough available trucks to maintain solid waste and yard waste pickup schedules. Equipment issues with these trucks in such hot and humid conditions as we’ve experienced over the last few weeks are not uncommon. We apologize to residents for the inconvenience. Our first priority is to pick up solid waste (green carts). Our staff is currently working on its off days of Wednesdays and Saturdays to catch up on missed routes. Our second priority is yard waste (brown carts) and it may not be collected this week. At this time, it is recommended to leave solid waste out for pickup and it will be collected as soon as possible. We hope to be back on schedule next week and will keep residents informed on our progress.

Since its inception in 2008, the North Carolina Field of Honor has been an annual tradition in Downtown Fayetteville. The Cool Spring Downtown District is proud to work with the Airborne and Special Operations Museum Foundation (ASOM) as a partner in this 12th Annual Field of Honor.

Hundreds of flags will fly on the parade grounds of the ASOM. Each flag comes with its own story and displays a tag identifying both the person who sponsored the flag and the flag honoree. This living display of heroism flies as a patriotic tribute to the strength and unity of Americans, and honors all who are currently serving, those who have served, and the men and women who have made the supreme sacrifice for our nation’s security and freedom.

Flags may be purchased to honor the memory of a veteran or current service member from any branch of service. To purchase a flag, visit the ASOM's online shop.

The Field of Honor Dedication Ceremony will be held at the ASOM at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 18th, and the field will then remain open for the public to visit during daytime hours through Thursday, June 27, 2019.
