RESIDENTIAL CURBSIDE PICKUP
In August 2011, all residences received a 65-gallon green recycle cart with a yellow lid. The lid has a photo of what can and cannot be recycled. The Town contracts with Waste Management for curbside recycling for residences and businesses and your Recycle Fee is included in your monthly utility bill.
RECYCLE COLLECTION SCHEDULE
Recycle collection is on the same day as your normal garbage collection day, even during holidays. The only day Waste Management does not pick up recycling is on Christmas Day.
OVERFLOW RECYCLING MATERIAL
Do not put overflow recyclables at the side of your cart for pickup. If you have overflow, take it to the NHC Recycle Center at the Moose Lodge on Carolina Beach Road.
Directions: Going north, when you reach the intersection of Carolina Beach and College Roads (at Monkey Junction), turn left. The Moose Lodge is about ½ mile ahead on the left.
