Garbage collection schedule not interrupted for 4th of July holiday

The garbage collection schedule will not change this week or next for the 4th of July holiday, but there is a new provide Waste Pro as of July 1.

Here’s what you need to know:

Beginning Wednesday, July 1, the Town of Cornelius will transition to a new solid waste provider.

The new contractor, Waste Pro, also provides solid waste services for  Davidson, Harrisburg, Concord, Belmont, and Monroe.

In spite of this change, you should not see a significant difference in service:

  •  Collections days will remain the same;
  • You will continue to use the same carts;
  • Yard waste will still be collected weekly with the same schedule and yard waste specifications; and
  • Recycling will still be collected every other week, and the collection week will remain the same. Please remember to “recycle right” and only put these items in the bin.

To ensure a smooth transition, Waste Pro drivers are spending time in Cornelius learning the routes. However, we ask for your patience should they miss any pick-ups in the first few weeks.

Missed pick-ups or damaged carts should be reported to Waste Pro at 704-317-2980 or online via Waste Pro’s TracEZ Portal.

Important note: Residents currently paying Republic Services for additional carts must contact Republic to cancel this service at 1-800-235-2583 by Tuesday, June 30. Those who still require additional carts may request them through Waste Pro by calling 704-317-2980.
