Holidays can present problems for customers. Changes regarding the trash collection schedule are one of the most frequently asked questions at Town Hall. It's a very important service provided by the town and residents like to know that their trash will be picked up in a timely and consistent manner. Rest assured we take our responsibility of good customer service seriously.
There are only two holidays each year that affect trash collection. Trash is not collected on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. That's it. All other holidays, citizens can expect to have their trash collected on their normal service day. The following chart should help keep collection service straight during the holidays!
Christmas Tree Collection
The Town collects Christmas trees at no charge through curbside pickup or a drop-off center. Christmas trees will be collected curbside from December 27, 2016 through January 13, 2017. Lights, tinsel, wire, ornaments and the stand must be removed. Please also remove any nails. There is no specific day for pick-up. Trees will be removed as time warrants, so please leave your tree curbside and it will be collected as soon as possible. Trees may also be dropped at our convenience center located at Action Park off Wake Chapel Road during the same time frame.
