To reduce odor, rinse your cart periodically and seal messy items securely in plastic bags.

The Village garbage is picked up every Friday by Pak R Disposal & Recycling Inc.

Please move your container from the side of street after pick up.

Yard Trash:  All yard trash placed beside the street and all limbs cut in 4 foot and no larger than 6 inches in width sections as required by the Pitt County Land Fill.
