WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – As you start to gather your trash from Christmas, here are a few tips to remember.
The City of Wilmington normally charges for excess trash pickup that does not fit in the trash cart, but customers will NOT be charged for excess trash only on the FIRST scheduled trash pickup until Jan. 1.
A minimum of a dozen stickers can be purchased by calling 341-7875. After that, customers will need to buy stickers for any extra trash that does not fit in their cart, according to the city.
Don’t forget, a lot of holiday debris, like cardboard, is recyclable and can be put in the new large lue bins for pickup at no charge.
According to the City of Wilmington, excess recycling that won’t fit in the blue carts can be put at the curb in a box, bin or paper bag and it will be picked up at no charge. Be sure to break down and flatten cardboard boxes.
Foil wrapping paper is NOT recyclable, but all other wrapping paper may be recycled.
