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.

Downtown Parking Reduced to $5

(Fayetteville, N.C.) — The Fayetteville City Council voted at their regular meeting on May 13 to reduce event parking in downtown from $10 to $5. The parking fee is charged during the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival, International Folk Festival, Fayetteville Woodpeckers games and other downtown events.

The City Council made the decision after hearing concerns from business owners and employees about the $10 fee representing too much of a financial burden for them and their customers.

“At Council’s direction, all City-owned lots and the Franklin Street Parking Deck will now charge only $5 for parking during events,” Deputy City Manager Kristoff Bauer said. “All of the rules we have previously established for these lots still apply. We continue to encourage residents and visitors to come to downtown Fayetteville to enjoy what it has to offer.”
