When is Halloween Celebrated in Apex?


Historically in Apex, kids have done their trick-or-treating on whatever day Halloween falls (October 31st, which this year is a Friday). However, the Town does not officially set this date, or take a position on what day any holiday is celebrated. 

For the safety of all involved, the only suggestion we make is that all trick-or-treating is done before 9 pm.

Halloween Events:

Wake County Landfill Tour Shows You What Happens After the Can


Wake county’s Solid Waste Management Division will provide free landfill tours on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the South Wake Solid Waste Facility located at 6300 Old Smithfield Road, Apex, NC 27539.

Participants will ride through a Convenience Center, a Household Hazardous Waste Facility, a Multi-Material Recycling Facility and a Landfill Gas-to-Energy Facility. Participants will have the opportunity to learn what happens to their household garbage after it is collected from the curbside. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to learn what common household items are banned from the landfill and how Wake County is turning household garbage into a renewable power source.

The tours are open to Wake County residents, but space is limited. To register and learn more about the tours, visit

Increased Filtering to Clear Up Water Quickly


Residents in some areas of town are currently experiencing an “earthy” odor/taste in their water. Each year around this time, our water source (Jordan Lake) begins to “turn over”, which creates minor and short-lived irregularities in our system. Not to worry though, your water is completely safe to use and consume.

The staff at the Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility are working to resolve the issue with increased charcoal filtering at the lake intake and UV filtering at the plant, which should clear up any odor or taste issues in 1-2 days.

Shred Day Scheduled for September 13th


The APD encourages all residents to help prevent identity theft by bringing unwanted papers containing personal information to be shred. It is open to residents and is free of charge. No home businesses, please.

Saturday, September 13th  *  9 am—Noon (or Until Shred Truck is Full)  *  205 Saunders St - Parking lot across from APD
