Using Your Recycling Roll-Out Cart
Placement of your Cart
Please place your cart at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Set the cart so that the arrows on the lid point toward the street. The cart should be placed away from light poles, mailboxes or fire hydrants, with ample room between it and your garbage cart and yard waste.
In the Cart
All items should be placed loose inside the cart. Excess recycling that will not fit inside your cart can be taken to the Citizen's Convenience Center, 313 N. Dixon Ave., at no charge.
If, over time, it's clear that your household needs more space for recycling:
- Request a second cart at no fee; or
- Customers with a 65-gallon cart may switch to a larger 95-gallon cart at no fee.
Multiple recycling cart exchanges will be subject to a fee per exchange. To order additional carts, please submit a request or call (919) 469-4090.
Citizens may also request a special collection for excess recycling that does not fit inside the cart. Each special collection is subject to a fee.
Customers with Physical Limitations
We offer curbside collection assistance to individuals who, because of permanent or temporary physical disability, are unable to bring their garbage and recycling carts to the curb. This service is provided only to qualified residents. If your doctor feels that you are physically unable to bring your rollout cart to the curb, please print and complete a Curbside Assistance Request Form, including signature and verification from your physician. You or your doctor’s office may return the completed form by mail or fax, listed at the top of the application. The Town will review each individual application for approval.
