Options for items that cannot be collected at curbside collection
Many items that cannot be collected as part of curbside garbage collection, yard waste collection, or special garbage collection services may be dropped off at the South Wake Sanitary Landfill or the North Wake Multi-Materials Facility. There is no charge to Wake County residents provided that the materials are taken in a non-commercial, single axle vehicle.
