Town of Ocean Isle Beach
Important Summer Sanitation Schedule Information
Posted on Wednesday June 28, 2017

A Note from Town Administrator                                                                                              June 28, 2017


Re: Trash and Recycling Pick-up Information


Recently Town Staff distributed the 2017 Sanitation/Recycling/Yard Debris Calendar to all property owners via U.S. Postal Service and multiple media outlets.  The calendar outlined the recent modifications to the garbage pick-up schedule, yard-debris collection schedule, as well as the introduction of the island-wide curbside recycling program.


Below is an outline of the changes the Town implemented for 2017:

  • Thursday garbage collection was deleted (Summer Season)
  • Garbage Collection schedule TWICE PER WEEK (May 22-Sept. 30) on MONDAYS & SATURDAYS
  • Curbside Recycling collection scheduled for EVERY MONDAY (May 22-Sept. 30) and bi-weekly for the remainder of the year (off-season)
  • Yard Debris Collection was moved to 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month (Year-Round)


We understand that it will take time to adjust to these modifications in the schedule and appreciate the efforts of our property owners, visitors, businesses, and real-estate companies to help make this transition as smooth as possible. 


The reason the Town chose the Saturday and Monday pick-ups was to accommodate rental turn-over schedule on Saturdays.  This would allow for garbage accumulated during the week to be disposed of on Saturdays and any additional garbage resulting from vacation rental cleaning to be collected on Mondays.


YOU CAN HELP! With everyone working together we can make this process and schedule much more effective!


  1. We ask that all Real Estate Rental Companies and VRBO Properties prominently display the attached flyer in your rental units so that all renters are informed of the schedule and proper garbage/recycling disposal guidelines.  If you need a printed copy of flyer – please visit Town Hall.
  2. Please place garbage poly-carts street-side the night BEFORE service. Collection begins at 6am on days of service.
  3. All garbage must be containerized.  Please do not place garbage on sidewalk or curbs.
  4. Do NOT place any garbage in the blue recycling carts.  Recycling Guidelines are provided on the top of each blue recycling cart.  Please follow these guidelines!
  5. We ask that everyone work together to return poly-carts to their homes or rental properties IMMEDIATELY after pick-up has occurred.  Rental Companies – please advise your staff to ensure this is done during the turnover period on Saturdays or after Monday pick-up.


Thank you for your participation in helping our collection system run smoothly to keep our island clean and beautiful!
