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!
