2023 Labor Day Holiday Schedule

Tuesday, August 22, 2023 - 10:17am

The Wake Forest Town Hall and other administrative offices will be closed Monday, Sept. 4, in observance of Labor Day. In addition, curbside trash, recycling, and yard waste collection will be suspended, along with Wake Forest Bus Service.

Town offices will re-open Tuesday, Sept. 5, at 8 a.m. Wake Forest Bus Service, including the Wake Forest-Raleigh Express and the Wake Forest Loop, will also resume its normal schedule September 5.

During the week of September 4, trash and recycling will be collected one day later than normal and extend into Saturday. So, for example, Monday's route will be collected Tuesday and Friday's route will be collected Saturday.

Yard waste collection will be suspended Monday, Sept. 4, but will resume Tuesday, Sept. 5, at 7 a.m. Crews will follow the normal collection schedule beginning with Monday’s route. Collection of the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday routes will occur throughout the remainder of the week until all have been completed. To ensure that all neighborhoods are serviced properly, Wake Forest residents are urged to leave their normal yard waste at the curb by 7 a.m. Tuesday. Please avoid placing items on or near mailboxes, utility boxes, utility poles or other fixed objects.

Bulk pickups will occur Wednesday, Sept. 6, and may extend into Thursday, Sept. 7. To schedule a bulk pickup, complete the online request form at http://bit.ly/WFBulkPickupForm or schedule a pickup by calling 919-435-9570 by 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1.

All voicemail requests for bulk pickup service must include the resident’s name, physical address, and telephone number, along with a description of the bulk waste items to be collected. Any service request that does not include the required information will not be processed.
