July 1: Two free bulk waste collections per year policy takes effect

From WSJ Staff Reports

In January the Town of Wake Forest introduced important changes to its bulk waste collection program. 

First, the Town expanded its definition of bulk waste to include items too large to fit in the trash cart and too difficult to take to the Wake County Convenience Centers. Examples of bulk waste items include wicker furniture, chairs, rugs, lawn mowers, swing sets and book shelves. 

Second, it agreed to collect bulk items, within acceptable weight limits, as long as the collection is scheduled in advance either online or by calling the Public Works Department. 

Finally, the Town announced that residents can schedule up to two free bulk waste collections per year. After that, collections will be billed at $50 each.

Beginning Thursday, July 1, the Town will begin implementing the two free bulk waste collections per year policy. Any bulk waste collections scheduled and performed prior to July 1 will be counted.

Again, residents may schedule up to two free bulk waste collections per year. After that, collections will be billed at $50 each. Residents are encouraged to maximize their free bulk waste collections by including several items in each scheduled pickup. 

Public Works officials wish to remind residents that bulk waste is collected weekly from 7 a.m. Tuesday to approximately 5 p.m. Wednesday. Anyone who schedules a bulk waste collection whose bulk waste has not been picked up by 5 p.m. Wednesday should complete and submit the Missed Collection Report form at www.wakeforestnc.gov/public-works/solid-waste.
