Collection Tips

  • Place only household trash in your rolling garbage bin.
  • Only items inside your cart will be collected - do not place overflow garbage outside of your carts. 
  • Roll your bin to the curb the night before your scheduled collection day.
  • Place your garbage and recycling carts 3 - 4 feet apart to allow enough space for the garbage truck’s automated arm.
  • Bagging your garbage helps keep your cart clean and reduces wind blown litter.

Prohibited Items

Do not place the following items in your garbage cart:

  • Yard waste (grass, limbs, leaves, dirt, rocks)
  • Construction debris (wood, carpet, sheet rock)
  • Automotive parts, including tires 
  • Hazardous waste (paint, oil, etc.)
  • Hot ashes
  • Metal

These items can be properly disposed of through yard waste collection, or at the Southwest Wake drop-off facility
