2023 Veterans Day Holiday Schedule

Monday, October 30, 2023 - 1:42pm

The Wake Forest Town Hall and other administrative offices will be closed Friday, Nov. 10, in observance of the Veterans Day holiday. Yard waste and loose leaf collection will also be suspended on November 10, but trash, recycling, and bulk waste collection will not be interrupted. Wake Forest Bus Service, including the Wake Forest-Raleigh Express and the Wake Forest Loop, will also follow the normal schedule.

During the week of November 6, yard waste crews will attempt to complete the normal five-day yard waste collection cycle in four days beginning with Monday’s route and ending with Friday’s route. So, for example, on Monday and Tuesday, crews will run the Monday and Tuesday routes and a portion of Wednesday’s route, then on Wednesday and Thursday, finish Wednesday’s route and complete the Thursday and Friday routes.

To ensure that all neighborhoods are serviced properly, residents are urged to leave their normal yard waste and loose leaves in separate piles at the curb by 7 a.m. Monday, Nov. 6. As always, please avoid placing items on or near mailboxes, utility boxes, utility poles, or other fixed objects.

Wake Forest residents can track the progress of leaf collection crews by calling the Leaf Collection Hotline at 919-435-9582. The hotline is updated each weekday morning by 8 a.m. with information concerning where crews will be working that day. 

Town offices will reopen Monday, Nov. 13, at 8 a.m.

Wake Forest residents are encouraged to stay informed about the Town’s trash, recycling, and yard waste collection programs, including changes to the normal collection schedules, by signing up for the “Waste Wizard.” Available on the Town website at http://bit.ly/WFWasteWizard, the Waste Wizard is an interactive tool that allows users to sign up for waste collection reminders and download collection schedules. As a bonus, the Waste Wizard is provided as a function on the Town of Wake Forest app under “Solid Waste Resources.” For more information or to download the Town’s app, visit http://bit.ly/TOWFApp.
