Introducing the Raleigh Reuse App and Web Tool

Raleigh residents and curbside collection customers have a new way to view their collection schedule and get up-to-date information on recyclable and waste materials—the Raleigh Reuse app and web tool. The free app is available on both Apple and Google app stores.

With the new app and web tool, you can:

  • View a real-time schedule and receive alerts on collection days, including holiday updates for your exact address.
  • Print your schedule at your convenience.
  • Use the Waste Wizard directory to search over 300 materials to determine if and how items can be recycled, donated, disposed of, composted, or reused.
  • Locate the nearest place to drop off sites for donatable items, electronics, and hazardous waste.
  • Test your waste disposal knowledge and play the Oak City Sort game.

As a reminder to customers, the Solid Waste Services department is no longer mailing a printed collection calendar to all residents. The collection calendar for your exact address will be at your fingertips using the app and web tool—no more waiting to see which carts your neighbors set out the night before. This change also supports the City’s sustainability efforts: In 2023, we sent out over 3,100 pounds of cardstock calendars and postage to residents—that’s a lot of paper! 

Download the app onto your smartphone from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store or access it on our website today.
