City to Remove Carts from Triangle ReStore Recycling Site on Dec. 11

Due to illegal dumping, containers will be removed.

The community recycling site located at the Raleigh Triangle ReStore (2420 N. Raleigh Blvd.) will permanently close on Monday, Dec. 11. While the containers are owned by the city, they are located on private property as part of a long-standing partnership with Habitat for Humanity to encourage community-wide recycling and waste diversion. The property owner has asked the city to remove the containers due to continued issues with illegal dumping and contamination from non-recyclable and hazardous waste. 

The three recycling sites closest to the Raleigh Triangle Restore are listed below. They are managed by Wake County.

  • Convenience Center #5 The Household Garbage & Recycling Center - 8401 Battle Bridge Rd, Raleigh
