Red Tag on Recycle Can & Curbside Container Policy
Posted on Wednesday July 03, 2019

As the summer gets started, kids are out of school and families are having cook outs which creates more recycle and trash.  Please help us keep recyclable materials from being contaminated and sent to the landfill.  If you see a red tag on your recycle can, then there is an item and/or items in the can that are not recyclable.  Pictured below are guidelines on what is acceptable and not acceptable to put in the recycle can.  Call Public Works at 910-944-7012 if there are any questions about the guidelines. 

Recycle Reminder

Curbside Container Policy

1.  The garbage and recycle containers should be placed at the curb either the night before or by 7 a.m. the morning of your regularly scheduled pick up day. 

2.  The front of the curbside container needs to face the street for easy pick up.

3.  The containers are to be removed from the curb the same day after the garbage/recycle is removed from the container.  Solid waste should still be placed in plastic bags and recyclable materials should be placed loose in the container.  Please do not put yard waste in the containers.
