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).
