Important News: Yard Waste in Streets
On September 9, 2019 the Winterville Town Council adopted an Ordinance that prohibits any person from placing, throwing, discharging, depositing, or allowing to be placed any yard waste including but not limited to leaves, grass clippings, pine straw, tree trimmings or shrubbery on any street or sidewalk. Yard waste placed in or on streets and sidewalks not only poses a safety risk for vehicles and pedestrians, but it also leads to clogged storm drains and ditches when it is washed or blown into the storm drains and ditches. This can lead to flooding issues and costly repairs. The Town requests that all yard waste be properly placed behind the curb.
