Recovery Act monies are being distributed to North Carolina primarily through existing federal/State channels in different program areas, such as transportation, education, health and human services, etc. (some monies constitute grants to individuals [tax reduction/stimulus, food stamps, etc.]).
A portion of the monies received through existing State of North Carolina channels is available to towns on the basis of competitive grants. Morrisville staff constantly monitors the proper channels to obtain the most money possible for our qualifying projects.
For instance, we participate with the local regional transportation planning organization which prioritizes transportation projects all over Wake County to ensure that Morrisville’s projects are given fair consideration in priorities for the region (at this time, however, Morrisville does not have any “shovel ready” road projects to qualify for transportation funding).
The Town does, however, have a building project that may qualify for stimulus funds. A new Fire Station has already gone through the design phase, and should be ready for construction should the stimulus grant.
The Recovery Act also offers grants for Firefighters and Police Officers, and Morrisville staff have prepared the necessary grant applications for these new positions. The grants typically will pay all direct personnel costs in the first year and a decreasing share for each of the following two or three years. Over time, the town will have to pick up all the cost for these positions.
Pursuing these grants may not be feasible with our long-term budgeting. The Town has applied through Wake County for additional CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) funds for sidewalks in the community, and the Town plans to submit an application for an Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant funded through Recovery Act monies (to be used for energy audits, building retrofits, other energy and resource conservation efforts). Submittal requirements have not been finalized.
Do not place yard waste, brush, or any construction debris in your container. Automotive parts, tires, hazardous waste, hot ashes, and corrugated cardboard are also prohibited.
You should continue to place recyclables for collection in the labeled recycling bins.
Please take overflow cardboard to the convenience center at 266 Aviation Parkway.
Please rinse and flatten recyclables if possible to maximize the use of bin space.

The Town of Morrisville’s solid waste services operate on a color-coded system, as follows: Monday- Red Route; Tuesday-Blue Route; Wednesdsay-Purple Route; Thursday-Green Route; and Friday-Yellow Route. Household garbage and recycling are collected each week on the day assigned to your specific address. Yard waste is collected twice each month on Wednesdays according to the color code, as follows: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays-Green & Yellow Routes; 2nd and 4th Wednesdays-Red, Blue & Purple Routes. When there is a 5th Wednesday in any given month, no yard waste will be collected.
All garbage must be bagged and must be placed inside your trash cart. Please do not place additional trash bags at the curb for collection. Likewise, acceptable recycling items (see link below) must be placed inside your recycle bin, with the exception of corrugated cardboard boxes. All boxes must be emptied, flattened, and broken down into 3’x3’ pieces or smaller and stacked neatly beside your recycling bin, as Waste Industries' recycling trucks cannot accommodate whole boxes. If you have a large amount of boxes to discard, please call the Public Works Solid Waste Line at 919.463.7120 or call Waste Industries directly at 919.596.1363 in advance of your pick-up day with an alert that you will have a larger than normal amount of boxes to be picked up. Space availability on the truck for your route can then be evaluated.
A very popular alternate option available for Morrisville residents who wish to quickly dispose of overflow boxes or overflow trash or recycling items would be utilizing the Wake County Convenience Center located at 266 Aviation Parkway in Morrisville. This manned Wake County facility is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., except for the holiday observances of Thanksgiving Day (closed), Christmas Eve (7:00 AM to Noon), and Christmas Day (closed). Please note that boxes will need to be emptied and flattened to fit into the specialized dumpster for recycling boxes located at that facility.
Please Also Note: Morrisville residents with curbside solid waste services must place their trash container and their recycle cart or bin curbside no later than 7:00 a.m. on their designated weekly collection day. Different specialized trucks will arrive to pick up trash and recycling, but the routes for both trash and recycling begin at 7:00 a.m., so please observe this time deadline to ensure successful service. Yard waste items must also be properly presented and placed at the curb no later than 7:00 a.m. on the Wednesday yard waste day designated per color-coded route.
If you have any questions or should any solid waste service problems arise, please call the Public Works Solid Waste Line at 919.463.7120 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday for assistance. Acceptable/Unacceptable Recycling Items

Waste Industries will not accept the following items for recycling: yogurt cups; margarine containers; pizza boxes; frozen food trays; plastic wrap; plastic bags; styrofoam; stamps and stickers in junk mail; motor oil bottles; and pesticide bottles.
For your convenience, recycling is picked up curbside every week on the same day that your trash is collected, and residents now have a choice between an 18-gallon recycling tub bin with bungee straps or a 65-gallon rolling cart with a lid. If you are using the 18-gallon recycling bin, please do not carry the bin by the bungee straps. Please use the handles, as the straps may fray or break.
Please Note: If you currently have an 18-gallon recycling bin but wish to exchange it for the bigger 65-gallon rolling recycling cart with a lid, you may either sign up online by utilizing the "Request a Bigger Bin Now!" link located on the "Recycling" page on the Town's website under "Public Works" Department, or you may simply call the Public Works Solid Waste line at 919.463.7120 during normal business hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for assistance.

Please do not place yard waste in your trash cart. Bundle or bag yard waste as required and neatly place it at the curb. Also, dirt must be fully removed from all plant remains. Waste Industries does not collect dirt, lumber or wood, bricks or blocks, containers, planters, or any inorganic materials.
If you have a large amount of yard waste that you have bagged yourself, it is always a good idea to call either the Public Works Solid Waste line at 919.463.7120 or Waste Industries directly (Phone: 919.596.1363) as soon as possible with an alert that you will have more than your usual amount. Waste Industries can then assess space availability on the truck for your route. Bundles and bags shall not exceed 20 in total per pick-up.
Please remember that this is a residential service for Town residents receiving curbside solid waste services from Waste Industries. If landscapers do yard work at your home, they are responsible for hauling away the yard waste generated.
