Waste Industries continues switching out recycling carts at homes that were missed. Call (919) 662-7100 if you did not receive a new cart or still have the old one.
Meanwhile, the transition to collection every other week with larger, 96-gallon carts is beginning. Your collection day remains the same.
The new carts are twice the size of those they are replacing.
Attached to each cart is a plastic bag containing two pieces of information. One is a decal that you can attach to the cart if you wish. The decal has lists of what can, and cannot, be recycled. The other piece of information is a service calendar for the remainder of 2014.
The changes are part of a new 3-year contract with Waste Industries that prevented a solid waste fee increase July 1. Without the changes, the fee would have gone up by 2.7 percent.
Contact Waste Industries at (919) 662-7100 with questions about recycling cart delivery or retrieval.
