Solid Waste Collection

The Town of Rolesville provides sanitation services to the residential homes in Rolesville.  Per the town ordinance, all residences and businesses are required to receive sanitation service.  There are three (3) separate services provided by the Town.

  • Garbage and/or solid waste
  • Recycling
  • Yard waste

For more information on what you can recycle, please click here for the Wake County page regarding convenience centers, and scroll down to the “acceptable items” section.


The Town of Rolesville contracts with Waste Industries to collect residential garbage and solid waste.  This company has had the contract since March 1, 2018.  Garbage and recycling waste are collected on Tuesdays across town.  Garbage and recycling are both picked up on the same day.

To sign up for collection, click here to fill out an online application for requesting service.  If you should have any problems with damaged carts or missed collections, please contact Town Hall at 919.556.3506.  Service must be first started through the Town of Rolesville.  Do not contact Waste Industries .

You may pay your waste bill online by clicking here.  Please note that there is a $2 convenience charge for this online service.  When paying your bill, you can choose whether to “create an account” associated with your garbage address or just simply “make a payment”.  If you decide to pay every month then the best route may be to set up the online account so as to save time and typing.  If you should have any issues or problems, do not hesitate to contact Town Hall at 919.556.3506.

There are several holiday dates that will affect collection.  For exact delays in services, please contact the Rolesville Town Hall at 919.556.3506.  The Town tries its best to stay in contact with all the citizens about various delays via email blasts and the Blackboard Connect Service.  If you do not receive messages and notifications from the Town, please contact Town Hall at 919.556.3506

There is some waste like white goods, bulk waste, scrap metal, etc. that are not collected through the normal residential collection service.  There are options for disposing of such materials that homeowners can explore.  They are as follows:

  • The Wake County Convenience Center located at 3913 Lillie Liles Road –  There is no cost to this and is funded through your Wake County tax dollars.
  • A Scheduled Special pickup through Waste Industries.  There will most likely be some type of cost associated but that will have to be coordinated with the contractor.
  • Habitat Restore Company – 919.744.2420
  • Raleigh Metal Recycling Company – 919.348.0545
  • 1-800-GOT-JUNK Company – 1.800.468.5865
  • The Junk Doctors Company – 919.466.9322


The Town of Rolesville also contracts out the curbside collection of all residential yard waste.  This collection is done by a different contractor (Allen’s Tree Service) and is not picked up on the same schedule as garbage and recycling.  Yard waste would include limbs, leaves, grass, and other vegetative manner.  There are certain guidelines for this service that need to be followed. CLICK HERE for a fridge flyer explaining rules, regulations, and all other details.  This flyer also lists the dates that yard waste will be collected.  If you have any questions that are not explained in the flyer, please contact Town Hall at 919.556.3506.
