CURRITUCK — Currituck County and Bay Disposal Inc. have established a new schedule for the 2014 curbside collection of trash and recyclables in Corolla.
The schedule follows meetings by county staff and Bay Disposal officials with property associations on the Currituck Outer Banks.
Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the collection schedule will be as follows:
• Monday and Friday service (in-season, May 1 to Sept. 30):
Buck Island, Corolla Light, Currituck Club, Pine Island, Spindrift, Ocean Sands South — Sections A, B and C, and remaining residences fronting N.C. 12 not included in communities listed below.
Off-season, Oct. 1 to April 30, pickup day will be Monday.
• Wednesday and Saturday service (in-season):
Corolla Village, Crown Point, Monteray Shores, Ocean Hill, Ocean Sands — Sections D-Q, Villages at Ocean Hill, and the Whalehead subdivision.
Off-season pickup day will be Wednesday.
Anyone not included on this list should call Brenda McQueen, Currituck County Public Works Department, at (252) 232-2504.
Recycling service has been expanded for 2014. From May 1 to Sept. 30, recycling will be picked up twice per week, on the same day as the trash collections listed above. Each house will continue to receive one free recycling container from Currituck County.
Property owners who previously leased trash cans from Waste Management may continue to use the same cans. Bay Disposal has purchased from Waste Management all containers in the lease program and will visit each house to place new stickers on these cans.
Citizens who own their cans may continue to use those containers. Bay Disposal will collect trash from each household, provided it is in a proper container, regardless of whether the cans are leased or privately owned.
Anyone who owns their cans may obtain a free sticker to specify the recycling can. These stickers are available at the Currituck County Satellite Office, located at 1123 Ocean Trail. Stickers are to be placed on the can’s top lid, so it is visible to Bay Disposal’s truck drivers.
Corolla customers needing to contact Bay Disposal regarding leasing cans, damaged cans, bulk pickups or other questions about service may call (252) 491-5105.
