To qualify for this service you must be either temporarily or permanently disabled as verified by your physician.  You must live alone or with another individual who also qualifies for this service.  If there is anyone who resides in the home that is physically able to place the cart at the curb, i.e. caretaker or other family member, you do no qualify for this service.  This service will also extend to your gray recycle cart.

Physically Disabled Verification
A doctor's verification form is available by calling the Solid Waste Customer Service Center at 704.866.6774 or click here.  You may call or email us and we will be happy to fax or email the form directly to your physician to reduce the amount of time it may take to begin this service.  Upon receiving the completed doctor's verification form, special collection will be provided for the physically disabled.  This application must be renewed every two (2) years in order for this special service to be continued.
Please have your carts placed in an accessible location, (not inside of a garage, behind a locked fence, or within proximity of your pets).  We ask that you place all your garbage in kitchen style trash bags (not small grocery bags) and keep your carts clean.
Please leave all recyclables in your gray cart, loose and not bagged.
