Recycling Collection Service

The Town provides bi-weekly curbside recycling collection. Once a voluntary program, recycling collection is now mandatory. Due to the State of North Carolina’s ban on cardboard, aluminum cans, and numbered plastics in the landfill, citizens are required to recycle or demonstrate how they dispose of the banned materials.

Recycling is easy! Simply put items directly into your blue recycle cart. DO NOT place recycle material in a plastic bag of any kind.  Make sure the cart is placed curbside the night before your assigned day to ensure pickup.  The Town of Fuquay-Varina will not empty blue recycling bins if materials are placed in a plastic bag of any kind or contain non-recyclable material.  

Recycling is picked up every other Wednesday and is based on where you live. Find out if you are assigned to the Blue or Green Route with our interactive webmap. When the map loads, expand the Town Information and Development layer group, and then turn on the Recycling and Leaf Collection Streets layer. Cross reference the  Green and Blue Recycling Calendar to determine your exact recycling collection date.
