The garbage and recycling day will change for nearly a quarter of the Town’s solid waste customers beginning the week of April 14.
Waste Industries, the Town’s solid waste collector, is redrawing route maps in Holly Springs to better balance workloads in light of growth patterns.
In recent years, daily collection areas have become increasingly fragmented.
In redrawing its map, Waste Industries has focused on creating geographical bands for each day that can be shifted as needed without requiring wholesale changes every few years.
“We feel like it will be easier to add new subdivisions in a given area,” said Ben Habets, general manager of Waste Industries.
The upcoming changes in garbage and recycling affect 23 percent of Holly Springs customers. Yard waste collection does not change.
The Public Works Department's Garbage and Recycling section will have a map of the new routes, plus the daily collection schedule by subdivision and selected streets.
Waste Industries intends to send postcards to those whose collection day is changing about two weeks ahead of time.
With the way collection routes are being drawn, Waste Industries said, drivers are likely to be near the neighborhoods they worked the previous day. If a driver misses a home for any reason, returning there to collect should be easier.
Waste Industries has tried to avoid splitting subdivisions.
If you have questions about the route changes, call Waste Industries at (919) 662-7100.
Luncie McNeil, Holly Springs Public Works director, said the changes should increase the efficiency of collections.
