A FINE OF $50.00 PER DAY HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED FOR LEAVING TRASH CARTS BY THE ROAD.

The Annual Fee for trash service is $201.00 (effective 7/1/16).  This includes one solid waste cart and one recycling cart.  This fee was previously collected by Onslow County through the Onslow County property tax bill but is now collected by ONWASA and billed on ONWASA customer's water bills.  The fee covers the cart and all pickups throughout the year.


Condo owners now receive the service through their condominium complex and are not billed by the Town (effective July 1, 2014).


Trash that is placed in carts other than the ones provided by Waste Industries will NOT be picked up.

Trash carts must be able to close completely and we do not provide for any pick up of extra bags next to the carts or anything that is not securely enclosed in the cart. If you have overflow you must obtain a second cart or you will be fined.


   

PLEASE PROVIDE THE ABOVE INFORMATION TO RENTERS IF YOU HAVE A RENTAL UNIT.

 


DUMPSTERS AT PUBLIC WORKS

The Town has removed the dumpsters at Public Works.  In an effort to provide an alternative option, a policy is in place to reimburse NTB property owners who need to dispose of solid waste at times other than scheduled pick up dates.  The alternative site is located at the nearby Folkstone Trash & Recycle Convenience Center on Old Folkstone Road.  Please read this policy for instructions on what materials are accepted at this site, the reimbursable rates, and how to receive a reimbursement from the Town.  Here is a map from Town Hall to the convenience center.



BULK PICKUP

The Town no longer does bulk pick up and no longer accepts these items at Public Works. Please read this policy on where to drop of bulk refuse items or contract a private hauler.

Effective July 1, 2011 televisions and computer equipment will be banned from disposal in North Carolina landfills. The computer equipment includes laptops, desktops, monitors, printers, scanners and peripherals such as mice and keyboards. These electronics must be taken to the Sneads Ferry Convenience Center at 320 Old Folkstone Road in Sneads Ferry, NC or the Onslow County Landfill  at 415 Meadowview Road in Jacksonville, NC.  More info
