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.

Citizens Academy

Citizens Academy Being Held on Aug. 14

The next Fayetteville Citizens Academy class is being held on Wednesday, Aug. 14, starting at Kiwanis Recreation Center, located at 352 Devers St., just off Fort Bragg Road. Class begins at 8:30 a.m. and features Fayetteville-Cumberland Parks & Recreation and the Development Services Department, which oversees planning, zoning, permitting and inspections.

Applicants must be City of Fayetteville residents, or work in Fayetteville city limits, and the class size is limited to 25 residents. This session will conclude at or before 5 p.m. To apply, scroll to the bottom of the page and download the application, fill out the application and email it to Nathan Walls at nwalls@ci.fay.nc.us. The application window closes Thursday, Aug. 8 and applicants will be notified of their acceptance by close of business on Friday, Aug. 9.

Residents will interact with staff of both departments and engage in hands-on learning activities that familiarize them with the functions of the departments.

“The Citizens Academy gives residents an opportunity to see City of Fayetteville employees at work, up close and personal,” said Corporate Communications Director Kevin V. Arata. “Residents can see exactly how City employees provide our residents with a high level of service every day.”

Lunch will be provided and residents are asked to dress appropriately for the weather in business casual attire and in closed-toe shoes. There will be some walking involved. Students will also be filmed by Corporate Communications staff, who will air footage of the class on FayTV and City social media webpages.

As a reminder, this Citizens Academy class is a one-day session that allows for more residents to attend the quarterly sessions. This format differs from the previous seven-week nightly Citizens Academy held in years past where residents attended all sessions.
