Solid Waste Billing

Solid Waste Services June 2020-December 2020

Currently, solid waste services are a part of your annual property tax bill. There is no need to start or stop service. New Residents should call 919-435-9570, utilize our cart request form, or email us to request service. 


Solid Waste Fee Expected January 2021

In June 2020, the Wake Forest Board of Commissioners voted to approve a $21.00 monthly solid waste fee to be included on residents' utility statements.

Beginning in January 2021, solid waste services will no longer be covered through your annual property tax bill. The monthly fee of $21.00 includes one 96-gallon trash cart and one 96-gallon recycling cart. Services will include weekly trash, recycling and yard waste collection, and - upon request - additional services such and furniture and brush pickup.

When you contact Raleigh Water you will be automatically added to the solid waste collection service for the Town of Wake Forest. If the home is new construction, you will need to contact Public Works to have the address added for service both with Raleigh and the Town. 

Business and Commercial

Business and Commercial entities should contact the solid waste provider of their choice for service. 

Moving Out

Beginning January 2021, residents moving out of town will cancel solid waste service when water service is canceled. Solid Waste carts should be left behind at your home.
