Significant construction projects are underway at two Wake County Solid Waste and Recycling Facilities. These projects will result in expanded access to services and increased ease of use. Both projects began in the summer of 2017 and run through the summer of 2018, weather permitting. Visit Wake County's Solid Waste and Recycling Facebook page for regular updates or get information about the projects here:

South Wake Multi-Material Facility
South Wake HHW Facility 


Beginning in July 2017, work began to reconstruct South Wake's Convenience Center, Multi-Material Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Facilities. The result will be an enhanced customer experience with better traffic flows, convenient drop-offs and expanded services. 

All facilities will be fully open to residents during construction, however drop-off locations and traffic patterns will be changing throughout the project.  Please use caution and look for the directional signs when visiting the facilities.

The project includes the following expansion and improvement items:

  • Constructing a new seven bay convenience center;
  • Constructing a new covered household hazardous waste drop off and storage facility;
  • Expanding the multi-material canopy and dock area; 
  • Improving traffic circulation by constructing separate routes for customer and operator vehicles; and
  • Constructing a centrally-located operator office area and a field office building for community educational purposes, as well as staff use.

Watch a short video of what the facility will look like once completed.
