2018 Annual Performance Report

The Reidsville Public Works Department oversees a variety of services provided by the City -- from water and sewer issues to snow removal and trash pickup. The City's Public Works Director Chuck Smith supervises and coordinates the department's five operational divisions: Garage, Public Services, Solid Waste Management, Wastewater and Water Treatment Plant.

Public Services Division

If you want to report a pothole or a water leak, you need to call the Public Services Division. Public Services is responsible for all 80-plus miles of local City streets as well as the storm sewer collection system, water distribution and sewage collection system. Employees can be seen around the City repairing local traffic signals or replacing traffic signs, public street snow removal, replacing sidewalks and curbs and repairing or replacing fire hydrants. Loose leaf pickup is handled by this division, along with operation of the City-owned Greenview Cemetery and maintenance of the City's network of parks, ballfields and greenways.

Greenview Cemetery (Mowing Season March-October)

Loose Leaf Pickup -- Loose leaf pickup starts in November and continues on until the first of January. Loose leaves must be raked to the curb for pickup, which is done on a weekly basis.

Solid Waste Management

A City is often judged by its appearance. The Solid Waste Management division provides weekly automated curbside residential garbage pickup. Bulk trash items, such as boxes, bags, discarded furniture, etc., are collected weekly in residential areas as is brush and yard waste. This division is committed to a "green" future and has had a recycling program since the early '90s. In 2016, voluntary curbside recycling was made available by Waste Management for City residents who apply for this service, which is done for a small monthly charge. Check out the City's Recycling page for more information on curbside recycling.

From time to time, the City holds a Residential Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event. None are currently scheduled.


This is a support division for all other departments in the City and has the responsibility of keeping the City's fleet of diverse equipment operating effectively and economically. 

Engineering Division

The City of Reidsville's Engineering Division, previously part of the Community Development Department, came under the Public Works Department in 2014. The Division is overseen by Steve Moran, City Engineer, and is located on the second floor of City Hall, 230 W. Morehead Street.
Wastewater Treatment Plant

Located at 407 Broad Street, the City of Reidsville's Wastewater Treatment Plant is operated by the City of Reidsville. It has a daily treatment capacity of 7.5 million gallons and is dedicated to the quality of North Carolina's water resources.  The plant's personnel are committed to public education and welcome local teachers to schedule tours of the plant for their students.

Water Treatment Plant

The Water Treatment Plant on Reid Lake Road is also operated by the City and has a capacity of 9 million gallons.  The City obtains its raw water from the 720-acre Lake Reidsville, which is also used as a recreational facility operated by the Reidsville Recreation Department.
