Citizen cooperation and participation in these services help the Town of Garner provide solid waste management in the most environmentally sensitive and efficient manner possible. With the citizens and the Town working together, Garner can protect the environment while controlling costs for waste management.

In 1997, the State of North Carolina required local jurisdictions to prepare a Ten-Year Solid Waste Plan and set a waste reduction goal. As part of Wake County’s plan, Garner set a waste reduction goal of 35 percent per capita by the year 2001. Citizen efforts to reduce materials disposed in landfills through reuse and recycling are the keys to meeting this goal.
