Regular Garbage Service
We contract with GFL to service trash and recycling. Town residents scheduled service day is Friday's with recycling service every other Friday depending on your address. Please see recycling map for your service week. Schedule exceptions for holidays will be communicated via our social media and direct message. We recommend having your trash cans out Thursday night as some routes start early.

Green Waste/Brush Service
We also provide green waste/brush pickup service on Thursdays. If you collect and gather the waste yourself (instead of using a contractor) and put it near the curb Wednesday evening.

Loose leaves do not need to be bagged during the months of October-March (Fall-Winter). On March 1 (Spring - Summer), leaves and smaller brush must be bagged to ensure pickup. 

Bulk Waste Service
The Town also provides bulk waste pickup which includes any large items such as furniture, appliances, and other household items. These pickups must be scheduled in advance by calling Town Hall at 919-494-2520. Please note that we cannot take electronics, like TVs, computers, microwaves, or hazardous waste materials, such as oil or paint or other chemicals. This service is scheduled for Friday's, so please have your items out Thursday night.
