Frequently Asked Questions

Why is recycling service changing?
Due to changes in the value of recyclables in global markets, recycling service has to change. Additionally, contamination (non-recyclable material) has increased, and a new model is needed to make recycling sustainable in the future.

Who does this affect?
For residents in Mocksville, Bermuda Run and Cooleemee, your service remains unchanged, and rates have been negotiated by the towns.

For residents with curbside recycling only, the Republic Services® recycling cart will be recovered unless you sign up for curbside recycling and waste service by July 1, 2021. If you sign up before June 15, 2021, you will receive one month free (a $22.68 value).

For residents who receive an invoice from Republic Services directly for recycling and waste services, your service will not change, but effective July 1, 2021, the quarterly rate for service will be adjusted to $68.04 per month.

Service days may change around October 1, when re-routing is completed. Residents will be notified if a service day change will occur.

I’m not sure what service I have. How do I find out what I need to do?
Call 336.751.1585 or 800.832.5439.

Am I required to sign up for curbside service?
No one is required to sign up for curbside service. Residents in Mocksville, Bermuda Run and Coolemee do not have to sign up for the service. The service for town residents has been negotiated by the towns.

Residents who live outside the towns and who have curbside recycling-only service have the option to sign up for service. For these residents, the recycling cart, which is the property of Republic Services, will be recovered unless they sign up for curbside recycling and waste service by July 1, 2021. If you sign up before June 15, 2021, you will receive one month of free service (a $22.68 value).

Additionally, all Davie County residents have access to the convenience site located at 360 Dalton Road. Rates are $10 for a car or pickup load, $25 for a trailer load and $35 for a pickup and trailer load. Sorted recyclables can be dropped off at no charge along with metal and white goods.

How do I sign up for curbside service?
Call Republic Services at 336.751.1585 or 800.832.5439 to sign up for curbside service. If you set up curbside service before June 15, 2021, you will receive one month of free service (a $22.68 value).

When do these changes take effect?
July 1, 2021. If you are a curbside recycling-only customer, carts will be collected the last week of June and the first week of July, when service will terminate. If you wish to continue curbside collection, you must sign up for recycling and waste collection prior to July 1, 2021. If you sign up before June 15, 2021, you will receive one month of free service (a $22.68 value).

For current curbside recycling and waste customers, service will not change. Service days may adjust, and customers will be notified of any changes. For residents of Mocksville, Bermuda Run and Cooleemee, service will not change.

Can I cancel my recycling to reduce my monthly charge?
No. Subscription rates for residents with curbside waste service are increasing overall due to industry operational cost increases. Subscription rates are the same, with or without recycling.

How do I recycle after my cart is collected?
Sign up for curbside recycling and waste collection for $22.68 per month. Sign up before June 15, 2021 and receive one month of free service (a $22.68 value).

When or how will my cart be collected?
