Find Your Recycling Week Holiday Schedule Schedule Subject to Change

Important Notice: SWS recently mailed out the FY22 recycling week calendars. As a result of past data changes in the ArcGIS system, some residents received the wrong calendar (a calendar that does not reflect their current recycling week).

How to request a new recycling calendar:
Call the Customer Support Center at 919-996-3245 on Mon.- Fri. between 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Residential recycling is picked up every other week. Make sure to place your recycling on the curb for pickup by 6 a.m. on your collection day. Please make sure to place recyclable items loosely in your blue cart. Keep plastic bags out of your recycling cart.

Holiday Schedule

Some holidays require changes to the City's regular curbside collection schedule. Check your service calendar or the collection schedule below to learn how the holidays may affect your service.

Remember: garbage, recycling, and yard waste should be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. on collection day. Due to the high cost of fuel and our limited staffing, it is not feasible for collection crews to return to your home after they have already serviced your street. Review these helpful tips for preparing your garbage and yard waste for collection and review these tips for curbside recycling.

Schedule Subject to Change

Collection schedules are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. To verify any last minute changes, check local media or call Solid Waste Services at 919-996-3245.
