CARTology is a waste collection calendar and reminder system. Through this free app, you can search for your collection days, set reminders, and search for how to dispose of different items. The platform also provides information on how items can be reused, recycled, composted or disposed of.

CARTology features a waste sorting game for children that is a fun, interactive way to learn how to properly dispose of waste.

Download the app in the Apple and Google play stores or use the search feature below.


The city now provides collection every other week of bulky items, white goods and e-waste the same day as recycling collection.   To find out your pick-up day, enter your address above in the CARTology app.

Recycling, bulky items, white goods, and e-waste collection will occur on ALL holidays EXCEPT Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. For those two holidays, collection will occur on a one-day delay for the remainder of the week to include a Saturday pick up. 

In the event of a missed pickup (not due to a holiday or posted delay), please call (704) 920-4444 within 24-hours.

Recycling Reminders

  • Recycling should be placed in your 96-gallon rollout carts with the YELLOW lid.  


  • To request a 2nd recycling cart, please call (704) 920-4444.  There is a fee of $2.50 per month to have a second cart.

  • Put your recycling rollout container at the curb the night before your collection day and remove empty rollout containers from the curb no later than 7 a.m. the day after collection day.
