UPDATED INFORMATION REGARDING
GARBAGE AND RECYCLING SERVICE FOR THE VILLAGE OF TOBACCOVILLE
IS INCLUDED IN THE VILLAGER NEWSLETTER WHICH MAY BE READ HERE.
The Village of Tobaccoville provides weekly curbside garbage
and monthly recycling service to residents, businesses, and
churches within the Tobaccoville Village limits under a contract
with Waste Industries through June 30, 2017.
Effective August 5, 2013, the Village of Tobaccoville
transitioned its recycling program to 96-gallon carts to be
picked up once a month. Residents were polled prior to making
this decision, and the results were overwhelmingly in favor
of the transition. This new service was implemented with no
increase in cost to Village residents.
Recycling pick-up dates are the first Monday
or Tuesday of the month, depending on resident garbage routes.
Monday garbage pick-ups will receive recycling pick-up on the
first Monday of the month. Tuesday garbage pick-ups will receive
recycling pick-up on the first Tuesday of the month. Pleae leave
space between the carts to accomodate the automated pick-up
system. For specific details about recycling, please click here.
Industries will not pick up hazardous waste, abandoned vehicles,
vehicle parts, bulky waste, construction debris, large equipment
and parts, tires, paints, yard waste, wood, or other items specifically
mentioned by contract.

Household Waste Collection
The Village of Tobaccoville does not offer hazardous household
waste disposal as a service performed or paid for by Village
taxes. This is, in part, due to the extreme difficulty and expense
of collecting, transporting, and disposing of such items. However,
Forsyth County residents have the opportunity to dispose of
hazardous household waste FREE of charge. This
service is sponsored by the City/County Utility Commission,
and the company which receives the waste is called 3RC -
The Envirostation. Residents may bring hazardous household
waste to their facility which is located directly across from
Bowman Gray Stadium at 1401 S. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive
in Winston-Salem. 3RC is open Tuesday through Friday
from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. Their
number is (336) 784-4300.
Wastes generated by commercial or industrial businesses are
not accepted. Examples of acceptable household waste includes
metal polish, oven cleaners, fluorescent light bulbs, rug shampoos,
bug sprays, pesticides, gasoline, fuel oil, anti-freeze, brake
fluid, car batteries, glues, chemical strippers, solvents, thinners,
batteries, unmixed photographic materials or other poisonous
fluids, ignitable, corrosive products, motor oils and paints.
3RC asks that residents please do not mix hazardous
wastes and keep them in their original container, if possible.
If the printed original label on the continer is not readable,
please print the name of the item on the container. Unacceptable
items which may not be brought to 3RC include ammunition,
explosives, radioactive or infectious materials.
Almost all the hazardous household waste taken to this facility
is recycled, and it is an environmentally friendly service.
Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this FREE
Street lights for the Village of Tobaccoville are erected throughout
the Village based on certain criteria. When the Village incorporated,
the original Council set forth the policy of lighting major
street intersections and at the incorporated limits. With the
help of the Department of Transportation and Duke Power, the
first lighting plan was adopted. At a later date, the Council
decided that businesses located in Tobaccoville should also
receive lighting. Later, the Council decided to place a street
light at churches in the Village limits. The Department of Transportation
now sets stricter guidelines on where lighting can be placed
and also regulates the illumination factor or brightness of
the street lights along state owned and maintained roads. Since
most roads within the Village of Tobaccoville are state owned
and maintained, this fact alone dictates many of the street
lighting locations. Currently, all major intersections within
the Village are lighted, and the Village can place lights at
churches and businesses on state maintained roads subject to
Department of Transportation approval. The Village does not
at this time place street lighting in any residential developments.
Due to limited resources and the desire to keep the tax rate
low, the Village of Tobaccoville only owns and maintains a very
limited amount of street system. Most of the street system within
the Village limits is state owned and maintained or privately
owned and maintained. The Village currently owns and maintains
approximately .61 of a mile of street system. The Village will
replace existing street signs within it's limits which have
fallen down or been destroyed at the Village's expense. Signs,
which are put up by the Department of Transportation, are replaced
by the Department of Transportation. If you wish to report a
problem with a street or street sign on any street within the
Village limits, the staff will be happy to listen to you and
try to help solve the problem. This may mean we will call the
DOT or come out and look at your particular situation. We welcome
the opportunity to be of assistance.
