Solid Waste Collection
The Town of Weddington has contracted with Active Waste Solutions to provide Town-wide household garbage collection starting the first week of January 2023. The contract with Active Waste Solutions includes waste, single-stream recycling, glass recycling, and optional additional services. It will provide significant cost savings over your current subscription service.
The garbage and recycling collection days in your area will be communicated several weeks prior to the contract start date. They will also be posted on the town website. Single Stream recycling (comingled plastic, aluminum, and metal food and beverage containers along with magazines, newspaper, junk mail, and cardboard) will be collected one week and glass-only recycling will be collected in a small separate rollout container every other week by a separate truck.
Rollout container delivery for customers not currently using Active Waste Solutions will be communicated in a website post as well as by email. All customers (current and new) will receive a small rollout container for glass only.
Current Active Waste Solutions subscription customers do not need to call Active Waste Solutions to cancel their subscription service. Residents who use another vendor should schedule the cancelation of their current service with that vendor effective January 2. Current Active Waste Customers will continue to use their existing containers for garbage and single stream effective January 2nd.
To save time, please do not call Active Waste Solutions in advance of the notice on the website and other literature that will be sent about service days.
Active Waste Solutions provides complete customer service for the Town of Weddington. The customer service number is 704-626-7400. Customer service is available Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with the exception of the holidays which will be communicated at a later date.
