Services

The Village of Tobaccoville provides the following services within the municipal limits:

Garbage and Recycling - updated June 9, 2017
The Village of Tobaccoville will be providing weekly curbside garbage and bi-weekly recycling services to residents, businesses, and churches within the Tobaccoville Village limits under a new contract with Foothill Waste Solutions effective July 1, 2017. Bi-week recycling is a new service which will be implemented at no additional cost to Village residents.

Your recycling pick-up day will be changing to every other Wednesday, depending on the day of the week your garbage is picked up. Residents with Monday garbage pick-up will receive recycling pick-up every other Wednesday starting on July 5, 2017. This is called "Blue Route". Residents with Tuesday garbage pick-up will receive recycling pick-up every other Wednesday starting July 12, 2017. This is called "Red Route". The recycling guidelines and pick-up calendar may be viewed here.

Foothill Waste Solutions 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.

If a holiday interrupts normal scheduled service, the affected parties will be notified through the Villager Newsletter, the Facebook page, and the website. If you have questions concerning holiday garbage schedules, you may also contact Village Hall for instructions. If weather conditions prohibit garbage and/or recycling collection, please watch WXII Channel 12 for rescheduling information.

Hazardous 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 service.

Street Lighting
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.

Street Maintenance
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.
