Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

The Wake County landfill is closed for the following holidays. If your garbage collection day falls directly on one of these holidays, garbage and recycling collection will be postponed to the following day and the rest of that same week will also be postponed by one day.  If the holiday falls on a weekend, your garbage and recycling schedule will not be affected.

  • Memorial Day
  • July 4th
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
  • New Year’s Day

For example, Thanksgiving Day always falls on Thursday, so Thursday’s collection would be on Friday and Friday’s collection would be on Saturday.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Apex and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
