Town Hall and other indoor facilities will be closed Friday, April 19 in observance of Good Friday, but regular solid waste collection will occur as usual. On Monday, crews will resume the special spring trash/yard waste pickup. We still need to complete yard waste collection in areas south of Poole Drive but north of Timber (portions of gold and green routes). Crews also need to pick up mattresses, electronics, TVs and tires in various parts of town. For more information about any waste collection matters, please contact Public Works at (919) 772-7600 Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed Friday, April 19).
Loose leaf collection starts Nov. 1 and runs through the end of February. You don't have to bag your leaves; just rake them to the edge of the street behind the curb and keep them from blocking stormwater drains and access to mailboxes. This is different from the fall unprepared yard waste collection--which, combined this year with storm debris collection, is well under way. Your leaf collection week coincides with your regular recycle week. Please try to keep leaf piles free of rocks, bricks, branches and similar hard objects. If you have questions, please contact Public Works at 919.772.7600.
