Charlotte and Mecklenburg County are preparing for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, which means trash and recycling services will be limited in the coming weeks.
▪ Charlotte: During the week of Christmas, all trash and recycling collection services will operate on a one-day delay starting Monday according to City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services. This means, for example, collections days scheduled on Tuesday, Dec. 26 will receive service the following day.
Trash pickup will not be interrupted during the week of New Year’s (Jan. 1-5).
▪ Mecklenburg County solid waste centers will be closed from Dec. 23-25, and on New Year’s Day.
Hazardous and flammable items such as batteries, gas containers and chemicals, should not be placed in garbage and recycling carts, the city says. Instead of throwing hazardous items in the trash, take them to one of the county’s full-service centers.
More information is available on the City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services website, charlottenc.gov. For questions, call the city at 704-336-7600.
Waste Pro, the solid waste collection service that most Mecklenburg County towns use for trash pickup, will operate on a one day delay beginning on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
This means Thursday and Friday pickups for Cornelius, Davidson, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville will instead be Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Here’s where you can find more information on trash collection services for each town:

As Mint Hill readies to open its third park in about 30 years, it plans to add a designated space for dogs.
The latest town park is a 27-acre park at 9801 Brief Road will include playgrounds, picnic areas and a hiking trail. A 1.9-acre area for small and large dogs will be the first for canines in town, said Steve Frey, town of Mint Hill engineer and director of public works.
Construction started this month and the park is expected to open by the end of the year.
“It’s going to be a nice little nature-type sanctuary,” Frey said. “I want it to be a showcase playground and kids’ eyes will light up.”
The park will include elaborate swings, a park merry-go-round, slides and a multi-level playground structure. There will be two playgrounds, one for toddlers and the other for about ages 5 and older, he said.
There will be a family-friendly, easy about 1-mile hiking trails through the woods.
Frey said it’s the first park he’s designed and constructed by Carolina Cajun Concrete.
The town is seeking name suggestions for the park through Oct. 1 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mint Hill has two other park-run parks: Park On Wilgrove at 7750 Jim Harper Lane and Mint Hill Veterans Memorial Park at 8850 Fairview Road. Frey said the memorial park was the last park the town built in the early 1990s.
Mint Hill had purchased the Brief Road land about 10 years ago through the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund, Frey said. The site was initially intended to be an athletic sports complex as part of a failed 2018 $15 million Parks and Recreation Bond.
Mint Hill decided to use American Rescue Plan Act COVID relief funds to build a park. Total cost is just under $800,000, Frey said.
Frey said parks were a good way for people to get out of their houses during the pandemic. “We’re trying to use the money for something COVID relief money was intended to be used,” he said.
Mint Hill also has a 91-acre park called Ezell Farm Community Park at 4101 Mintwood Drive in development that will include a splash pad, tennis and basketball courts, community garden improvements, informal amphitheater, pavilion and walking trails. Completion is expected in fall or early 2024 for the first phase, according to Arts & Science Council’s website. The group will provide public art for the park.
But the town of Mint Hill likes to have “its own crown jewels as well,” Frey said.

Mint Hill’s only brewery plans to open next month in downtown with a Caribbean vibe.
Panzu’ expects to open Sept. 15, co-owner Rosa Marte de Pacheco told The Charlotte Observer.
“Imagine yourself in a white wedding on a beach with light Latin and Caribbean music. We want people to feel relaxed,” de Pacheo said.
De Pacheco and Johan Marte, natives of the Dominican Republic, named the brewery in honor of their late father, who they and the grandchildren called Papá Panzú. The siblings had been shareholders in theirs father’s fruit pulp production company.
“He loved beer. He had a big beer belly, and that’s what panzu’ means — big belly,” de Pacheco said.
The two have been homebrewing for several years with small batches of 50 to 60 bottles of IPA, American blondes and American ales, according to the Panzu’s Instagram.
Mint Hill’s first brewery, Barking Duck Brewing Co., closed in 2018 after two years at 4400 Morris Park Drive.
Panzu’ Brewery will have a seven-barrel system that can produce 546 barrels each year on site, according to the company’s website and social media.
The year-round beer list includes everything from New England and tropical IPAs to blonde and amber ales, as well as wheats and stouts. Panzú also will have seasonal and exotic Caribbean flavors.
There will be 16 taps, including one each for cider and kambucha, de Pacheo said.
Wines also will be available.
Panzú Brewery’s small plates include tropical fruits, pork and plantains. Menu items include canal de la mona, caramelized sweet plantain, tender pulled pork, and manchego cheese inspired by Dominican and Puerto Rican flavors, and Pina colada ceviche, a Peruvian ceviche with a Caribbean twist with fish, coconut, pineapple and lime juice.
The brewery will have indoor seating for about 69 people and 30 outdoor seat on the front deck and back patio.
De Pacheo said they expect to hire about 13 full- and part-time employees.
The Charlotte Ledger newsletter first reported about the brewery’s plans.

Casa de Avivamiento, a bilingual Spanish and English church with roots in the Charlotte area, wants to establish a home in Mint Hill, but it has to get approval for traffic-related improvements first.
Pastor Andres Hernandez submitted a project application with town officials for the church, which means “House of Revival” in English. His wife, Pastor Kalena Hernandez, is also looking forward to the move. The goal is to build a 16,000-square-foot building for 400 people. The vacant property at 8235 Bartlett Road is east of Interstate 485, on 13.6 acres.
Planning documents did not indicate the cost of the project. According to online real estate listings, the value of the property is $650,000.
“The fact that we’re a bilingual church has helped with first-generation and second-generation Spanish speaking families,” she said about services provided in two languages. “It kind of build a bridge to keep both groups together and worship together.”
At a public hearing in September, Mint Hill commissioners sought additional information about a left turning lane, which was not part of the preliminary site plan.
Along with 160 parking spaces and the main building, there are also plans for additional buildings on the property.
Established in 2014, Casa de Avivamiento will be celebrating a decade of providing service to Latino and bilingual communities in the Charlotte area next year. More than 200 people worship there, with families representing the U.S. and countries in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
“We’re extremely grateful for the past 10 years for being able to share the gospel and getting to know people in the community here in Charlotte,” Kalena Hernandez said.
The church is currently sharing space at 2200 Coronation Blvd. in Charlotte with Fathers House, a bilingual Russian and Ukrainian congregation.
The Isaacs Group, civil engineering design and surveyors, is working with Casa de Avivamiento on the turning lane addition and making sure it can fit since it’s close to the I-485 bridge.
John Hoard, Mint Hill’s planning director, has been communicating with the surveyors. He said they want to make sure the spacing of the left turning lane doesn’t impact the bridge.
“There’s really no room to add any lanes on the bridge or anything like that,” Hoard said.
A public hearing on the issue is set for Nov. 9, according to the town’s meeting schedule for commissioners. Before they gather, the planning board will discuss the church’s request on Oct. 16.
A decision on the project is expected in November or December.
“We’re excited about what God has planned for the future for the church,” Hernandez said.
