Memorial Day holiday schedule
The Wake Forest Town Hall and other administrative offices will be closed Monday, May 31, in observance of Memorial Day. Wake Forest Bus Service, along with curbside trash, recycling and yard waste collection will also be suspended.
Wake Forest Bus Service, including the Wake Forest-Raleigh Express and the Wake Forest Loop, will resume its normal schedule Tuesday, June 1.
During the week of May 31, the trash and recycling collection schedule will operate 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 resume Tuesday, June 1, 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, Wake Forest residents are urged to leave their normal yard waste at the curb by 7 a.m. Tuesday. As always, please avoid placing items on or near mailboxes, utility boxes, utility poles or other fixed objects.
Bulk waste collection will resume Wednesday, June 2, and may extend into Thursday, June 3. To schedule a bulk pick-up, complete the online bulk waste pick-up request form at http://bit.ly/WFBulkPickupForm by 2 p.m. Monday, May 31.
Residents without internet service can schedule their pick-up by calling 919-435-9570 by 2 p.m. Monday, May 31. Residents who call after hours may leave a voicemail message. All voicemail requests for bulk pick-up 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.
When scheduling a bulk waste pick-up, Wake Forest residents are urged to follow the Town’s bulk waste guidelines. Bulk Waste is defined by the Town of Wake Forest Code of Ordinances as items that are unable to fit in your trash cart but too difficult to take to the Wake County Convenience Centers. Examples of bulk waste pick-up items include furniture, lawn mowers, swings, and book shelves. For more information, visit wakeforestnc.gov and search “Bulk pickup.”
