City Loaner Truck

If you have more than a half pick-up truck load of debris that needs to be disposed of, you can request the use of the City's loaner dump truck. The City loaner truck is not to be filled with any debris from commercial contractors. You must have an active water account with us and a truck request form will need to be completed at City Hall. For more information on pricing and this program, please call City Hall at 704-824-3518. Press option #1 for Customer Service.
