Short-Term Rental Solid Waste Collection Rate Changes
In April, the Town went out to bid for solid waste collection services and reentered in a contract with the lowest bidder and current provider Carolina Waste. As a reflection of the new contract rates, the commercial collection services will have an increase in fees. This will be the first increase in rates since 2012. Below is the summary of rate changes:

This collection service includes backdoor garbage collection weekly on the designated day, plus additional collection on Fridays from May 1st through Labor Day.
