Extra Garbage Cart

Raleigh Solid Waste Services provides each household we serve with one 95-gallon garbage container. For residents who consistently produce more garbage than will fit in the cart there are several options:

  1. Purchase a second garbage cart. Each household may purchase one additional cart for a fee of $40 each.
  2. Ensure that you are recycling all that you can. This will help reduce the amount of garbage you have! Review this list of the items that we accept for recycling.

To purchase an additional roll cart, call 919-996-3245.

Mothballs contain toxic properties that can be harmful and should only be disposed at Wake County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Avoid using them by protecting clothes in closed bags or try cinnamon sticks, bay leaves or whole cloves wrapped in cheesecloth.
