Celebrate Wake County Recycling Day November 19

Recycling and disposal event at North Wake Multi-Material Recycling Facility

Wake County residents generate an average of five pounds of trash per person, per day. With the county growing by 64 people per day, recycling is key to reducing the amount of waste that goes into our landfills. Wake County is partnering with the City of Raleigh to encourage residents to recycle and properly dispose of items instead of throwing them in the trash.

A Wake County Recycling Day event will take place on Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the North Wake Multi-Material Recycling Facility, located at 9029 Deponie Drive in Raleigh.

County residents are encouraged to bring their household recyclables, electronics, batteries, paint, chemicals and other items to the free event for safe disposal and recycling.

A paper shredding truck will also be on site to destroy sensitive documents at a limit of three file boxes per household. Due to the high volume of traffic, this will be a drive-through shredding event, and residents will not be able to stop and wait for their documents to be shredded.

The North Wake Multi-Material Facility will be open for regular operation during the event; however, large quantities of tires and other materials will not be accepted during the event hours.
