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. 

Stormwater Division


City of Fayetteville Stormwater Division

Stormwater is the resulting precipitation from rain and storm events.  Stormwater runoff is generated from rain and snowmelt that flow over land or impervious surfaces, such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, and does not soak into the ground. As this water flows over these areas, it picks up sediment, nutrients, bacteria, metals, pesticides, and other pollutants. Unlike sanitary sewers that go to a treatment plant, most stormwater is discharged directly into local water bodies. Increasing amounts of impervious surfaces in urban areas, such as rooftops, driveways, parking lots, and streets, decreases the ability of the water to soak into the ground, thus increasing the potential for flooding from greater volumes of runoff entering the City's stormwater system at a faster rate.

The Stormwater Division maintains a 24-hour HOTLINE at 910-433-1613 to answer your stormwater questions and/or report stormwater problems related to drainage or pollution.

City’s Stormwater Program Marks Over 20 Years!

The 20th anniversary of the City of Fayetteville’s Stormwater Division was observed in 2015.  In July 1995, the City was issued a municipal stormwater discharge permit from the State and EPA.  Since then, the Stormwater Division has worked diligently to protect the environment by implementing provisions of the permit.  The Stormwater Division has developed a press release of a few of their accomplishments which can be viewed here.  The Stormwater Division, along with the City of Fayetteville is committed to improving stormwater and continues to develop new programs to address concerns.
