Wake County’s Solid Waste Management Division (SWMD) provides waste disposal and recycling services to residents and businesses in Wake County. The SWMD manages 17 waste facilities, including a landfill, a waste transfer station, 11 residential waste and recycling convenience centers, two household hazardous waste drop-off facilities and two multi-material recycling drop-off facilities. The SWMD also provides an array of outreach and education programs, including two national award-winning programs: the Feed the Bin school recycling program and 86it Anti-Litter Campaign. Last year the SWMD landfilled over 400,000 tons of garbage, recycled 30,000 tons of materials collected at Convenience Centers and generated enough energy using landfill gas to power as many as 8,000 homes.
