Other Solid Waste Collection Schedules

The City of Laurinburg collects the following recyclable materials:

Corrugated cardboard is collected every other week along with your recyclables. Please flatten your cardboard boxes and place inside or next to your recycling bin on your scheduled recycling collection day.

Bulky items are collected weekly on the same day of the week as household garbage. Please place your bulky items at the curb on the same day that you place your roll-out card at the curb for collection. Bulky items include all large trash items that cannot fit in your cart, such as furniture, white goods (appliances), television sets, electronics, large toys such as bicycles and swing sets, lawn equipment and used tires. The City does not collect building materials resulting from construction, demolition, remodeling or repair work. Bulky items may not be placed at the street for more than 24 hours prior to your scheduled collection day.

Yard Waste is collected as often as possible with a goal of one pickup per week. It is not assigned to any particular day as the trucks get as far as they can each day. Please separate all yard waste into two separate piles, one containing limbs, shrubbery clippings, and/or pine cones, and the other containing leaves and/or grass clippings.  Debris from tree removal will not be picked up without additional fees.

Diabetic or other medical needles should be placed in a hard plastic container with a secured lid.  Once they are in a secured container, they can be placed in your green roll out garbage cart.

Fluorescent light bulbs can be placed in the green roll out cart for the regular garbage pick-up.
