Recycling Bin

EDENTON -- The Town of Edenton is thrilled to announce that curbside recycling will be resuming on Wednesday, December 6! Following this initial launch, curbside recycling pickup will take place every other Wednesday following. This will allow us to skip over the Christmas holiday week as well. 

Here are a few reminders for the public as we work to resume service: 

• Recycling will be town-wide, every OTHER Wednesday. County residents unfortunately are not eligible for this service, we apologize. 
ONLY plastic (bottles and jugs), paper, cardboard, cartons, and aluminum/metal cans will be accepted. 
• If you continue to use recycling bins for trash, Public Works could confiscate it. This includes businesses. Make sure you’re covered and visit Town Hall to purchase some trash carts. To request a blue bin, call Public Works at (252) 482-4111. 
NO GLASS! The full list of accepted recyclables is pinned to the top of our Facebook page, right next to Utility Aid. 

"We are eager to resume our recycling program after nearly three years since it was suspended in 2020," said Tyler Newman, Public Information Officer. "Our staff has worked overtime to bring this service back to our residents, and we could not be happier to announce the start date for December." 

We thank all of our residents who voiced their support of recycling and expressed their desire to see the program return. We also give kudos to Councilman Roger Coleman for his advocacy and dedication to seeing the resumption of curbside recycling come to fruition. Any resident with questions about the resumption of curbside recycling is urged to call Public Works at (252) 482-4111 or the Public Information Office at (252) 482-2155 extension 535.
