The functions of the Environmental Services section include providing reliable collection of residential and commercial garbage and recycling. Additionally, we pick up leaves and other yard trash in the Fall vegetative, provide collection for construction sites, and remove waste and dead animals from roadways. Environmental Services is also tasked with keeping the mosquito population of Kinston in check, which we do by spraying standing water with larvicide and spraying neighborhoods in the summer.
The flowchart below does not represent the size of the section, in fact Environmental Services is one of our largest employers! It is simply meant to outline all the different positions it contains.
