Keep Iredell Clean


Iredell County has five locations that accept solid waste and recycling.

​The City of Statesville offers a curbside recycling program for homeowners within the city limits. Nearly one-half of the 9500 families with trash pickup in Statesville, participate in the Statesville program. Conducted every other week, schedules for Blue Bin Weeks (indicated with a blue dot on a red bin) and Red Bin Weeks are advertised on cable television Chanel 4 and available from the Statesville Sanitation Department. Items not collected by the city may be delivered to any one of the four county collection sites. For further information, or to replace a damaged or lost bin, call the Statesville Sanitation Department at
