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. 

Shawcroft Road- Kings Grant Community


A section of Shawcroft Road, including a culvert, was washed away by Hurricane Matthew on October 8, 2016. Following the disaster, the City conducted an assessment of the roadway to determine an estimated cost for repairs. The estimated cost to fix the roadway and replace the culvert is $1.3 million.

Project Overview

The City will construct a new culvert in 2018 on Shawcroft Drive, at the entrance to King’s Grant, to provide a permanent entrance to the neighborhood.  The existing culvert was washed away by Hurricane Matthew floodwaters and a temporary culvert was put in place to allow access to the neighborhood.
