  • Branches must be bundled.
  • Branches or pieces of wood must be less than 4" in diameter and less than 4' in length.

Bulk Pick-Up

The Town provides three bulk pick-ups each calendar year for all residents. They are usually scheduled in the Spring, Summer, and Fall during which each household is allowed up to four (4) bulk items to dispose. Check your WasteConnect App for more information and specific instructions. 

Residents can also contact Waste Connections directly to arrange additional bulk pick-ups. The fee associated for each additional bulk pick-up is the responsibility of the resident. 

In addition to using Waste Connections, bulk items can be taken to the Union County Solid Waste Management Facility (landfill) located in Wingate. There is a charge to use this facility. More information on the landfill can be found here.
