Trash Collection

  • The Town provides weekly trash and yard waste collection for residents within Town limits.
  • This service is paid through property taxes. There are no fees or accounts to set up or cancel.
  • Your first trash roll cart is free and the yard waste roll cart is $50.
  • There are some special wastes we collect for a fee (furniture, extra yard waste, etc.)
  • You may rent small dumpsters for yard waste collection ONLY.
  • Orange County Solid Waste provides recycling services and drop-off centers.
  • To help protect collection workers, dispose of all trash inside a tied trash bag and place it inside a trash can. The Town provides one trash cart at no charge, and additional carts may be purchased for $60. Call 919-969-5100 to request the delivery of a trash cart.
