The Town of Knightdale will delay yard waste pickup to allow time for residents to gather any yard waste from Hurricane Florence and have it ready for pickup later this week. The Town has begun picking up Zone 1 Yard Waste today. Unfortunately, there is much more wast to be picked up that previously anticipated. Please be patient as we will be delayed. Rest assured, we will come get it though!
Thank you for your support!
For information on what we can pickup, and your route, please refer to the schedule and address look up on the Knightdale Yard Waste page.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE KNIGHTDALE!

Rita Rakestraw, Student Jayden Bond, and Mayor James Roberson
February 22, 2018
KNIGHTDALE - Mayor James Roberson and the East Wake Middle PTA President Rita Rakestraw recognized East Wake Middle School Students at the February 22nd Knightdale Town Council Meeting for their participation in the East Wake Middle School's Reflections Contest. The Mayor and PTA President handed each student their Certificate of Excellence in the areas of Literature, Photography, and Visual Art, while also getting a picture with the Mayor.
East Wake Middle School 7th grader Jayden Bond who also submitted his piece and won at the county level, will now go on to the state level for his artwork, a captivating comic strip. 7th grader Victoria Crummy came in as a runner up on the Wake County Level for her visual art submission. "The Town Council, Knightdale Residents, and everyone from this community are proud of you " the Mayor stated as he recognized the talent of all the students in the room.
After Presentations and Recognitions, one young man stayed after to listen to the ongoing Town Hall discussion. Brian Castro-Zapete then asked to present Mayor Roberson with his piece, which the Mayor graciously accepted.
