Waste Management

The Town of Bailey uses Waste Management Inc. as its solid waste collections provider. Curbside pickup is every Thursday morning. Please have your cart at the curb by Wednesday evening. The monthly fee is $13 for each "WMI" garbage cart. When service is requested the Town provides a residence or business with the number of garbage carts that are applied for. Each garbage cart is a 96 gallon black trash cart. There are no recyclable carts provided. All household garbage must be tied in bags, placed inside the provided container(s) and placed curbside on the scheduled pick-up day. There should be no recyclable items in any household garbage. No other garbage carts can be used and no garbage/garbage bags should be left beside a garbage cart prior to curbside pickup. If any garbage is not within the provided container(s) then it will not be picked up.

Bailey, NC

Yard waste is typically picked up on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month. Please check the calendar on the home page to see if there are any changes to these dates. Please help the town to provide quicker service by placing leaves, pine straw, and pine cones near the curbside. Yard debris is not collected with the trash truck, so please do not use the town-issued trash carts to collect your debris. Any limbs should be separated from all other debris and placed at curbside also. Limbs should be no more than 4 feet in length in order to be picked up.

The Town does not pick up bulk items such as white goods, furniture, air conditioners, and recyclable electronics (i.e., TV's or vacuum cleaners). Theses items can be taken to the Nash County Landfill at 3057 Duke Road, Nashville, NC 27856. Any other questions about what is permitted in the landfill can be directed to the Nash County Solid Waste offices at (252) 459-9899 or via Nash County's website
