Your Yard Waste Service
Yard Waste collection is performed weekly by the Town of Apex Public Works & Transportation Department personnel for residential customers.
On occasion, weekly collection is not possible, due to these reasons:
- Inclement weather (this includes periods of heavy rain)
- Holidays (yard waste collection workers are town employees, and get 11 paid holidays)
- High Demand (especially from Oct-Dec during peak leaf season)

In an effort to divert inappropriate materials from Wake County landfills, the Town of Apex is encouraging the use of compost bins to help residents dispose of yard waste. Compost bins are available at the Public Works Department during normal business hours. Cash or check will be accepted for payment. Rain barrels are also offered.
