When is trash pick-up?
The Town of Yanceyville picks up residential trash on Tuesday morning each week. Trash is expected to be placed in trash cans by the roadway by 7:30 AM for pick-up. Yard debris, appliances, and large items such as furniture are not picked up by the Town. Those items may be disposed of at the Caswell County Landfill.
Also, any trash that is not placed in a trash can (no larger than 40 gallons) will not be picked up, and is considered a nuisance violation of the Town's Code of Ordinance. Due to public health and safety laws, un-canned trash is considered a health threat to the community. Repeated violators of this nuisance ordinance can be fined up to $50.00 per occurrence.
Do I need a permit to burn leaves and yard debris?
The Town of Yanceyville does not provide citizens with yard debris removal; therefore the State of North Carolina allows citizens to burn their yard debris in their yard. The Town of Yanceyville does NOT require a permit for these types of burns. Please take great care to ensure that you are not creating an unsafe environment when you burn.
We suggest that you avoid burning leaves and yard debris near roadways, neighboring property lines, or near buildings, as well as avoid burning leaves during times of day that may have limited lighting, gusty winds, or any other times that may be unsafe.
For more information about legal ways to burn yard debris, check out the following presentation on open burning in NC:
