Independence Day Holiday Schedule

Friday, June 25, 2021 - 10:25am

The Wake Forest Town Hall and other administrative offices will be closed Monday, July 5, in observance of the Independence Day holiday. Yard waste collection will also be suspended, but curbside trash, recycling and bulk waste collections will not be affected.

Yard waste collection will resume Tuesday, July 6, 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 routes have been completed.

To ensure that all neighborhoods are serviced properly, please leave your normal yard waste at the curb by 7 a.m. on July 6. As always, please avoid placing items on or near mailboxes, utility boxes, utility poles or other fixed objects.

Residents are reminded that beginning July 1 they may schedule up to two free bulk waste collections per year. After that, collections will be billed at $50 each. For complete information on bulk waste collections, visit and search “bulk waste.”
