Sign Up for Waste Wizard
The Waste Wizard makes it easy for Wake Forest residents to stay informed about the Town’s trash, recycling and yard waste collection programs, including changes to their normal collection schedules. The Waste Wizard is an interactive tool that allows users to sign up for waste collection reminders and download collection schedules. The resource also allows users to type in key words related to disposable household materials and receive valuable disposal tips. From aluminum cans and phone books to popcorn bags and plastic beverage bottles, the search tool helps residents determine which items can be recycled and which ones should be thrown away. As a bonus, the Waste Wizard is provided as a function on the Town of Wake Forest app.
