​New Requirements in Place for Residents Using Box Trucks or Dual-Axle Trailers at Convenience Centers

Contractors must use private landfill or transfer station

Starting Monday, April 30, residents using a box truck or dual-axle trailer to drop off trash or recycling at any of the 11 Wake County Convenience Centers must have a Trash Pass. The purpose of the pass is to ensure the centers are only used for disposal of residential waste.  

Because Wake County Solid Waste facilities are funded through the $20 annual household fee paid by residents and not businesses, contractors will be officially restricted from using convenience centers and other county facilities to discard construction and demolition waste. Contractors will be directed to private landfills or transfer stations to dispose of waste. 

The new restrictions will reduce traffic congestion at the convenience centers, as well as help save taxpayer dollars by reducing the amount of money the county spends on construction and demolition debris disposal. 

Apply for a free Trash Pass here. County residents using a smaller vehicle or single-axle trailer do not need to apply for a pass.
