Garbage Pickup and Recycling Rules

The Town of Youngsville provides its citizens with a garbage service for a set fee.  This service is mandatory by Ordinance. Fees are billed a month in advance at a rate of $24.68.  Each residence and business is furnished a 90 gallon roll cart.  Curbside Recycling is also available for a fee of $6.16 but is not mandatory. You can rent extra roll carts or recycling carts for an additional fee. 

Household garbage ONLY is allowed in the roll carts, there should be no brush, recyclables, etc. located in the roll cart.  All garbage should be in bags; no loose litter, shredded paper, ashes, packing peanuts, etc.  Residential and Business pick up is done once a week on Thursday and should be at the curbside, but NOT in the roadway, by 6am though we recommend placing them out the night before.  These conditions must be met for household garbage to be picked up in accordance with the contract between the Town of Youngsville and the sanitation service.  Recycling is picked up every other Thursday.  Allowable items are: Plastics such as containers (numbers 107, NO oils or pesticides) including soda and water bottles, milk jugs, shampoo and detergent containers, and food trays;  Glass – bottles and jars of any color; Metal such as tin and aluminum cans, aluminum foil and metal trays; and Paper products such as newspapers, magazine, catalogs, junk mail, envelopes, office paper, phone books, cereal boxes and paper egg cartons.  Corrugated cardboard is NOT allowed in the recycling containers and should be broken down and placed at curbside for Monday pick up. 

The Town will also provide the pickup of items other than household garbage.  No full truck load of anything without a $50.00 fee per load plus actual tipping fees as billed by Franklin County Transfer Station.  Payment of $100.00 in advance is needed before we can pick up the full load.  Should the bill be less than $100.00, we will apply the remaining portion to your garbage bill.  Any amount over $100.00 will be added to your account and due with the next month’s bill.

  1. Monday is the scheduled pick up day for the Town Truck, weather permitting.  Have your garbage at curbside, but NOT in the roadway, by 7:00am.  If you miss Monday pick up, it will be the following Monday before we are able to pick up the garbage.
