The Solid Waste Division provides several programs that ensure a clean and healthful environment for our City. The refuse collection program is responsible for the collection and transfer of solid waste from residential and commercial areas to the Beaufort County Solid Waste Transfer Station. Our recyclables are collected bi-weekly (every other week). In the yard waste collection program, City employees collect leaves, limbs and other brush at the curb bi-weekly (every other week). The free bulky trash program helps our residents dispose of any items that are too large to place in a garbage cart. This program operates the second full week of February, May, August and November. At other times residents may dispose of any of the above items at no charge at any of the Beaufort County Solid Waste Convenience Centers (Magnolia School Road, Gray Road-Chocowinity, and Cherry Run Road are closest to Washington) or may arrange for the City to pick them up at a charge of $100 per truckload by calling Public Works at (252) 975-9302.
