Oct Nov Dec '19 Trash Pick Up Schedule.


Holiday schedule

​Solid waste pick up is on Wednesdays & Saturdays during the summer (first week in May through last week in October) and Wednesdays during the winter (First week in November through last week of April).

Recycling pick up is only on Wednesdays, year-round.

If you are experiencing issues with pick-up or a broken cart, please email or call Town Hall at (910) 328-1349.


Containers should be at the end of your driveway and visible, the night before pickup. 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.


Effective July of 2019, the fee is $17.19 per month ($206.28 per year).  This includes one solid waste cart and one recycling cart.  This fee is collected by ONWASA and billed on ONWASA customer's water bills.  The fee covers the cart and all pick-ups throughout the year.
