HICKORY, NC (March 10, 2017)…The City of Hickory’s Street Department is busy preparing for the winter weather. Snow plows and spreaders are being prepared and crews are on stand by for whenever they may be needed on Saturday evening or Sunday morning to begin the cleanup efforts. Snow plows will be continually used to plow the streets for the duration of the storm, starting with the major streets and eventually working into the residential streets, once the major streets have been cleared.
In the event of a winter storm, the Solid Waste Department will be collecting garbage as weather and road conditions permit. Residents should place their rollouts to the curb on their normal day and leave it there until it can be collected. Recycling, yard waste, and commercial accounts will also be collected as weather and road conditions permit.
The City will be working diligently to maintain safe roadways and collect garbage as efficiently as possible. However, citizens should limit travel as much as possible and exercise extreme caution during the winter storm event.
If you have questions regarding garbage, recycling or yard waste collection in the City of Hickory, please call (828) 323-7500.
