Garbage/Recycling

Garbage collection is provided to all Town residents along with a roll out container. The Town does not charge for garbage collection; however there is a landfill fee of $14.00 per month included with your utility bill.

Garbage collection for residents inside the city limits is every Friday morning and it is recommended that trash be placed curbside on Thursday evening.

Only one container per address is permitted.

Recycling is a county-wide program available to all Davie County residents at no charge. Recycling is collected every other week on the same day as garbage collection. Please place your recyclable material in the recycle cart provided to all Town and County residents. Recycling must be placed curbside no later than 6:00 am the day of collection. If you need a recycling cart, call 800-832-5439. For convenient reference, please download the Mocksville Garbage and Recycling Guide and Calendar.

A state law banning the disposal of plastic bottles in landfills became effective Oct. 1, 2009. Plastic bottles join aluminum cans, which have been banned since 1994, as items that must be recycled. The law does not apply to containers that are intended for use in the sale and distribution of motor oil or plastic pesticide bottles.

Items too large for bins may be taken to the Davie County Landfill located at 360 Dalton Road, Mocksville, NC.

For additional information, please contact Republic Services, Incorporated at 800-832-543.
