Holiday trash service date changes

Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The City of Wilmington will be closed Thursday and Friday, so trash pick up dates will change.

City customers who would normally have their trash, recycling, and yard waste picked up on Friday, are asked to have all items curbside by 7:30 Wednesday morning.

Trash services on Thursday, Dec. 24 will be unaffected by the city's closure.

After the holidays, Christmas trees can be picked up as part of the city's service for Wilmington customers.

Undecorated trees should be placed at the curb like yard waste.

Also, all wrapping paper can be recycled, whether it's foil, paper or tissue. Boxes can also be recycled.

Recycled items should be placed in the city-provided recycling bin; any extra recycling can be placed in another container and placed at the curb.

Regularly scheduled pick up services will resume the week after Christmas.
