​Recycling and Trash Disposal Improvements Coming Soon to Eastern Wake County

Convenience Center Site 11 will accept limited items during construction

Residents will soon see new and improved options for recycling and trash disposal in eastern Wake County.

Renovations are underway at Wake County’s Waste Disposal and Recycling Convenience Center Site 11, located at 5051 Wendell Blvd. between Wendell and Zebulon. The site will remain open to all residents during construction, but only household garbage, mixed recycling, cardboard, scrap metal, clothing and oyster shells will be accepted.

The project includes renovations to the existing Convenience Center, as well as the construction of permanent Household Hazardous Waste and Multi-Material Recycling facilities. These improvements will give residents a convenient option for safely discarding items such as paint, batteries and electronics. Work is scheduled to be complete in summer 2018, weather permitting.

In addition to facility improvements, changes will be made to the existing traffic pattern at the site, making it easier for customers to enter the facility and access the disposal areas they need, based on the items they are discarding. Customers are asked to pay close attention to directional signs during and after construction.

Residents can find other recycling and waste drop-off locations in the county on the Wake County Solid Waste Management website.
