Holiday Schedule

Listed below are the holidays the Town of Wake Forest will observe during 2014. On these holidays, the Wake Forest Town Hall and all other administrative offices will be closed. Police service will not be affected during any of these holidays, however, Wake Forest Bus Service and sanitation service schedules may be altered. Approximately one week prior to each holiday observance, the town will prepare a press release detailing any changes to its normal operating schedule and link it to the corresponding holiday.

Holiday Garbage & Recycling Collection 
The Town of Wake Forest contracts with Republic Services for garbage and recycling collection. Republic does not collect garbage and recycling on the following holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Whenever one of these holidays falls on a weekday, Republic will run that day's garbage and recycling collection route the next day. From that point forward, the week's collection schedule will operate one day later than normal and extend into Saturday. So, for example, if the holiday falls on a Friday, the Monday through Thursday routes will not be affected, and Friday's route will be collected on Saturday. 

Whenever one of these holidays falls on Saturday or Sunday, Republic will be closed the following Monday. As a result, the collection schedule for the entire week will operate one day later than normal and again extend into Saturday.
