Kannapolis 2024 garbage, recycling calendar released
Published 12:00 am Tuesday, January 2, 2024
KANNAPOLIS — Kannapolis has released the 2024 garbage/recycling calendar. In addition to the garbage/recycling collection schedule for 2024, the calendar includes information on what items may be recycled. The calendar also details the holiday schedule for garbage/recycling collection.
Important tips for garbage/recycling in 2024:
The city asks that people do not bag their recyclables, and that you reuse, donate or throw away Christmas lights, hoses, cords, clothing and grocery bags because they get stuck and clog the recycling machines.
Officials also encourage people to reduce and reuse — not just recycle. As the market for recyclables continues to fluctuate, it is important to find ways to reduce and reuse items rather than just being a throwaway society.
Please sort your recycling and trash into the proper carts. The carts with yellow lids are for recycling only. Carts with gray lids are for your trash. Contaminated recycling carts will not be picked up.
Place recycling/trash carts at the curb, making sure to leave a minimum of three feet between the cart and other objects, such as mailboxes and vehicles. If carts are blocked or trucks are unable to get to them, they will not be collected.
Residents can download the mobile app, CARTology, for Apple or Android devices for more information. Just search for CARTology in the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android). From the app, one can learn how to dispose of items, view the collection calendar and receive notifications.
The CARTology functions are also on the city’s website at www.kannapolisnc.gov. Residents can type in their addresses to view collection schedules, set up notifications, and search items to see if they are recyclable or if they should be placed in the garbage.
