The collection of garbage and recycling for the week of Sept. 7 will operate one day later than normal and extend into Saturday. So, for example, Monday’s route will be collected Tuesday and Friday’s route will be collected Saturday. 

Yard waste collection will be suspended Monday, Sept. 7, but will resume Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 7 a.m.Crews will follow the normal collection schedule beginning with Monday’s route. Collection of the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday routes will occur throughout the remainder of the week until all have been completed. To ensure that all neighborhoods are serviced properly, Wake Forest residents are urged to leave their normal yard waste at the curb by 7 a.m. Tuesday. Please avoid placing items on or near mailboxes, utility boxes, utility poles or other fixed objects.

Bulk pick-ups will occur Wednesday, Sept. 9. To schedule a bulk pick-up, complete the online bulk waste pick-up request form at http://bit.ly/WFBulkPickupForm or schedule a pick-up by calling 919-435-9570 by 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 7.

Any service request that does not include the required information will not be processed.

When scheduling a bulk waste pickup, Wake Forest residents are urged to follow the Town’s bulk waste guidelines.
