It's No Joke! Solid Waste Services Needs Your Help

Help test the new Raleigh Reuse tool

It may be April Fool’s Day, but the Raleigh Reuse app and web tool is no joke. Coming this summer, any Raleigh resident will be able to use this tool to access all things waste and recycling. That includes:  

  • Quick access to your household collection calendar;
  • Reminders for collection days;
  • Immediate answers on how to recycle specific household items;
  • Find where to donate or dispose of larger items like furniture; and,  
  • An interactive recycling game!

But we are going to need your help! Have you ever been confused about what you can recycle in Raleigh? Are you left scratching your head trying to determine the best place to dispose of your old mattress, batteries, and oyster shells? Do you wait for your neighbors to put out their carts to know whether it's yard waste or recycling week? Knowing exactly what to do with all the types of waste we generate can be confusing, and it's precisely why the City of Raleigh is bringing you this new tool.

But where do you come in? We need Raleigh residents to help us test the Raleigh Reuse tool. Your feedback on this experience will help us better support the entire community. Whether you are an expert recycler or just getting started, your participation can help us best meet Raleigh’s waste needs.  

Sign up now to test the Raleigh Reuse tool. The deadline to sign up is April 15.
