Call sanitation at 910-938-5338 to obtain a recycle bin. The City provides a 65-gallon bin on wheels with a lid. There is no additional charge to participate in the City recycling program.

There are a couple options here for disposing of remodeling material. If the amount is small enough to place in your trash can, please do so. If you have a larger amount, you can schedule the dial-a-trailer. If remodeling materials is placed at the curb, sanitation personnel will inspect and determine if charges will be assessed by the city.
Dial-a-Trailer is a service offered at no additional charge, providing for residents assistance in removing an excessive amount of yard waste or junk materials. The city provides a 12'x8' trailer to be parked at your residence for two nights or over a weekend to load with yard or junk materials. Scheduling for this service is based on availability, on a first-come-first-served basis.
The city's weekly yard waste collection is Wednesday of each week except holiday weeks. Curbside yard waste is vegetation only; tree limbs, grass clippings, pine needles, brush, etc. Small, loose items need to be contained in paper compost bags, medium-size box, or a container that is no larger than a 32- gallon size. Yard waste cannot be collected in plastic lawn bags. Limb or brush piles larger than one cord (4 feet by 4 feet by 8 feet) will be inspected by sanitation personnel to determine if there may be a charge assessed for collection by the city.
The dial-a-trailer may also be requested for disposing of excessive amounts of yard waste. Sod, dirt and rocks are not yard waste and cannot be collected by city crews. The sanitation holiday schedule is available online.
