Garbage Collection Services

As a service to its residents, the Town of Huntersville provides garbage collection services through a private contractor. Household garbage collection is handled by Waste Management and will be picked up once a week. All garbage must be placed in roll-out containers and placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. Waste Management utilizes fully automated curbside waste collection, so please follow the guidelines outlined below when curbing your roll-out:

  • Curb your roll-out container the night before your collection day. Please leave a 3 foot space between the carts.

  • Place your roll-out within 4 feet of the road. Do not place the roll-out next to your mailbox. Make sure it is clear of trees and overhanging limbs.

  • Make sure the wheels of your roll-out are away from the road (the lid hinge should be placed away from the road).

  • If you have any extra materials outside roll-out, make sure they are bagged and placed beside roll-out. Waste Management will not pick up boxes larger than 2' L x 3' W x 2' H in size.


Household garbage that does not meet the above criteria will be tagged as non-compliant. If the resident makes household garbage conform, it will be collected at the next regularly scheduled pick-up.

Waste Management is not responsible for missed pick-ups if the container is not curbside. Roll-out containers are the property of Waste Management and must not be removed from the premises. If you have any questions or would like to arrange for service, call Waste Management at 800-927-8362.
