Holiday Collection Schedule

Holiday Garbage & Recycle Collection



There are only two holidays each year that affect trash collection. Trash is not collected on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. All other holidays, citizens can expect to have their trash collected on their normal service day. 

On Thanksgiving, Thursday customers will have their garbage picked up on Friday, November 25th.  Since Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, garbage service will not be affected.

If a holiday falls on a Monday, bulky items and appliance pick up will be on Tuesday.

Christmas Tree Collection


The Town collects Christmas trees at no charge through curbside pickup or a drop-off center. Christmas trees will be collected curbside from December 27, 2016 through January 13, 2017. Lights, tinsel, wire, ornaments and the stand must be removed. Please also remove any nails. There is no specific day for pick-up. Trees will be removed as time warrants, so please leave your tree curbside and it will be collected as soon as possible. Trees may also be dropped at our convenience center located at Action Park off Wake Chapel Road during the same time frame.
