At the City of High Point, we focus every day on enriching the lives of our citizens by creating an exceptional environment and providing exemplary services that enable our community to thrive and prosper. In achieving this, we offer curbside/backdoor collection assistance to individuals who, because of permanent or temporary physical disability, are unable to bring their garbage and recycling carts to the curb. We limit this level of service to those who do not share a residence with someone who could bring the carts to the curb on their behalf.
As part of the program, City of High Point crews will collect garbage and recycling from either the back/side yard area of your home. It is imperative that the service is provided only to qualified residents and there are no obstructions that would prevent us from performing this task safely.
An application is required and you may contact the Customer Service Center to receive an application by calling (336) 883-3111. Please note your application will not be considered complete without a physician’s signature on their office letterhead.
