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. Public Works Director Kevin Eason 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, maintaining and sweeping the streets, removing snow, 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. Starting in 2016, voluntary curbside recycling will be 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. The last one was held on May 16, 2015.
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.
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.
Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants
The City of Reidsville's Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants had previously been contracted out to United Water for day-to-day operations, but beginning at midnight December 31, 2013, the City took over those operations.
