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 Volunteer Program

The Citizens Volunteer Program functions in support of community-related activities as well as supporting daily operations of the Fayetteville Police Department. Citizen Volunteers can assist the Police Department in various administrative and community policing capacities. Citizen volunteers are a great asset to the Police Department and help build ties within our community and getting our citizens to help make a great department even better. Volunteers assist us regularly in areas such as clerical work, departmental events, crime prevention events, training, Police Activity League, and much more. It is a requirement that in order to volunteer you must have successfully completed the Citizen’s Police Academy.  Citizens who volunteer are subject to a background check prior to being accepted and are not compensated for the services they perform.

If you are interested in being a volunteer please fill out Volunteer Application Form or call Lieutenant Young at 910-433-1630 for more information about volunteer opportunities within the Fayetteville Police Department.
