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.

 Few places in America have played such a formative role in our country's most defining moments as Fayetteville. 

The Liberty Point Resolve of 1775 pledged local support for the Revolutionary War cause for independence from England while Scottish heroine Flora MacDonald rallied for the loyalist cause. After the Revolution, with no permanent state capital, the North Carolina legislature periodically met in Fayetteville at the State House. In 1789, at a meeting in Fayetteville, the legislature ratified the U.S. Constitution and chartered the University of North Carolina, America's oldest state university.

Fayetteville's original settlers were from the highlands of Scotland and arrived in 1739 via the Cape Fear River. The area grew as a center of government and commerce because of its location as an inland port and the hub of the early "Plank Roads" system, key to overland travel from the 1840s to 1850s.

Fayetteville stands testament to its proud past. Many structures have been painstakingly preserved to reflect this history in four designated historic districts:

  • Downtown Fayetteville National Register Historic District
  • Haymount National Register Historic District
  • Liberty Point National Register Historic District
  • Market House Square National Register Historic District

Historic Resources Commission 

The Historic Resources Commission is responsible for reviewing and approving all exterior changes within the designated historic districts and to landmark properties. They also are responsible for conducting public awareness and education programs concerning historic properties and districts within the City of Fayettevile.
