The Sanitation Division provides contractual collection of solid waste and recyclable. The City provides semi-automated collection of yard waste.
Most items collected by the City's contractor require some sort of preparation before collection. The need to follow preparation requirements is important so that items placed on the street's edge are collected promptly and not left to become a community eyesore. Specific preparation and placement requirements for these items are listed on our Refuse Pickup and Recycle Pickup page. Please call 252-726-6848, ext. 122 or 132, for more information.
