Garbage & Recycling
The Town of Holly Springs, through GFL Environmental, provides residential curbside collection of garbage and recycling. Residents sign up for garbage and recycling service when requesting water service in the Finance Department at Town Hall.
Garbage collection occurs weekly. Recycling is collected every other week on the same day of the week as garbage collection. Collection of trash and recycling can occur any time during your scheduled day; collection trucks run throughout the day until 7 p.m. Place carts at least 5 feet from the closest mailbox or post.
Remember to place only appropriate items in your garbage container. Materials such as dirt, yard waste, construction materials, and household hazardous waste items should not be placed in your garbage container. Dispose of these items properly, such as through the town’s yard waste collection or by taking the materials to a Wake County waste or recycling facility.

Residents can drop off household hazardous materials at the South Wake Landfill at 6130 Old Smithfield Road, Apex. Click here for more information on county household hazardous waste collection. For more information, contact the county at (919) 856-7400.

- How do I get a replacement garbage or recycling bin?
Call Public Works at (919) 552-5920. Public Works will contact GFL Environmental on behalf of the resident, and GFL Environmental will replace the bin. Residents should expect cart replacement to occur on the next scheduled collection date.
- I am a new resident. How do I get rid of my moving boxes?
Break down all boxes, and place the boxes in 3'x3' square stacks beside your curb the night before your scheduled pick-up. All packing materials need to be placed in your garbage cart. You also can take flattened boxes to the Wake County Convenience Center located off Old Smithfield Road or contact GFL at (919) 662-7100 following a move to request a bulk box pick-up for a fee.
- What can and cannot be thrown in my garbage cart?
Only household garbage, preferably bagged, should be placed in your cart. Bagging helps keep your garbage cart clean and reduces windblown litter. Continue to place recyclables in the labeled recycle bin for collection.
