Household Trash

Knightdale is served by the Garner Branch GFL Environmental facility.

All household garbage should be bagged, and the bags placed within the rolling GFL or Waste Industries trash cart to ensure proper service. Please place your collection containers at the curb the night before your scheduled pick-up day to ensure you get serviced.

Roll-out containers must be removed from the curb the night after trash/recycling is collected (either Wednesday or Thursday, depending on your location within the Town). They may be placed at the curb no earlier than noon the day before. Violators may be fined $20 for each incident.

Construction Demolition or debris is not accepted.

Please don't leave bags on top of or around your cart. Also, please keep the containers at least three feet away from utilities, storm drains, mailboxes, etc. especially during or after severe weather.
