To find out if your property is located within the City limits, you may visit the Lincoln County Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping web site. Once you have located your parcel, the property record will appear on the left side of the screen. It will indicate whether the site lies within the city limits. Properties located within the city limits appear in light green on the County map. You can also contact the City of Lincolnton Planning Department at 704-736-8930 or the Lincoln County Planning Department 704-736-8440 to determine if the property is located within the city limits.
Yes, the City does require zoning approval and a zoning permit to install a fence. Prior to installation, you need to ensure that the fence is located entirely on your own property and not on any right-of-way, utility easement, on an adjoining property or inside an intersection site triangle. There are some restrictions regarding the height of the fence. Fences typically cannot exceed 6 feet in height if located within a required setback area within residential districts. Fences can be placed on the property line. You should check your boundary survey to determine the property line and the location of any utility easements.

Only plastic triangle types #1, #2 and #5. No other plastic can be recycled.
Only plastic triangle types #1, #2 and #5. No other plastic can be recycled. Thin plastics like clear food packaging (ex. Saran Wrap), 6-pack rings, baggies, and bread/frozen food/dry cleaning/grocery bags get tangled in the recycling equipment and cause machinery damage. Soiled paper (food debris, grease) can't be recycled with clean paper pulp since the grease can't be removed. Look for the "triangle" symbol and number on items before recycling.
NO, recycling will be picked up once per month on the First Friday of each month. The service starts Friday June 7, 2019.
DO NOT place your recycling roll-out at the curb with your regular garbage. And DO NOT place any regular household waste in the recycling roll-out.
Many items can be considered contaminants. Contamination happens when non-recyclable items are mixed in with recyclable items; the wrong materials are put into the system (plastic grocery bags, hoses, propane tanks, etc.) or the right materials are prepared the wrong way (recyclables in plastic bags, food left in containers, etc.). Placing regular household waste in the recycling bin is a major cause of contamination.
Innocent looking paper smeared with food or grease cannot be processed with clean paper. So used napkins, paper plates, pizza boxes are NOT recyclable. Plastic grocery bags get tangled in recycling machinery and cause equipment damage. Plastic six-pack rings get tangled and also cause equipment damage.
Stick to the list of acceptable recycling materials and don't put anything else into your recycling bin. Too much contamination is the reason manufacturers reject tons of recyclables each year.
When in doubt, leave it out - and put in the trash.
The simple answer is weight and sorting. Glass weighs too much, especially in a "single stream" or co-mingled recycling program. In addition, the glass recycling market has declined.
Municipalities used to be paid for their recycling loads, which helped subsidize the cost of the recycling program. Now the City of Lincolnton actually pays a "tipping fee" to unload recycling at a MRF (Materials Recovery Facility). Tipping fees are based on weight and paid by the ton of material. So, although glass is 100% recyclable, the cost to add heavy, unsorted glass to Lincolnton recycling loads is too expensive for the city and taxpayers until the market recovers. The city monitors the recycling market and hopes to add glass back to our residential curbside recycling program when the glass market improves.
City residents are encouraged to drop off pre-sorted glass recycling at any of the Lincoln County Convenience Sites.
If the pizza box hasn't been used and it's a CLEAN pizza box, it can be recycled. Once a pizza has been placed in the box, there is residual grease and food material left in the box. So the food material that seeps into the cardboard make it a DO NOT recycle item.
