Trash & Recycle

Trash and Recycling
Policy Guidelines
The Sherwood Association Rules and Regulations as well as the Winston-Salem City Ordinance Sec. 26-6 (a-c) regarding trash collection from residential premises are as follows. We strive to keep our community looking beautiful and one of the ways to do this is to timely remove our trash cans from the curb after trash collection on Thursdays. This shall constitute official notice to all homeowners and tenant residents of the trash policy in Sherwood Association and should be kept with your homeowner or tenant documents.
The Sherwood Association Trash Policy Guidelines, Trash and Recycling, page 3, is as follows: 
Trash pick-up is on Thursday (unless otherwise stated for holidays or bad weather). Trash containers should be put out by the curb either late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. The containers should be returned to their storage place (out of sight) no later than the end of the day on Thursday.
The City Ordinance is as follows:
(a)  Generally. Except for those residences that are exempted from curbside collection, garbage and household trash, as defined in subsection 26-1(4)f. and 26-1(4)g., shall be collected curbside. Such collections shall be limited to a maximum of three 96-gallon refuse receptacles or a total capacity of 288 gallons per collection. The city will provide one 96-gallon container free to each single-family household that is not exempt from the curbside collection program. Additional carts may be provided for a collection cost of $40.00 per cart, per year, or any part thereof.
(b)  Excess household trash accumulation (curbside collection). No additional bags may be placed outside the cart for collection. All garbage must be bagged using heavy-duty plastic bags and be completely contained within the cart, with the lid closed.
(c)  Residents may place the container at the curb no earlier than 5:00 p.m. on the day before the resident's normally scheduled collection day. Carts should be placed out no later than 6:00 a.m. on the normal day of collection. All carts should be removed from the curb by 8:00 a.m. the day after collection, unless collected on a Friday. Friday collection carts must be removed by 8:00 a.m. Monday, unless the schedule is changed. Exceptions will be made during schedule changes due to emergencies or holidays.
Periodic inspections of the community will be conducted to identify those residents who violate the trash container placement rules. If you have failed to comply with our policies by leaving your trash container in view after the recommended times as outlined in the Rules and Regulations and are found to be in violation you could be subject to a fine of $100.00 per occurrence.
