New Garbage Container and Schedule
In an effort to streamline operations, reduce costs, and improve the appearance of town streets, the Town of Elon will be transitioning from two pick-ups a week to one pick-up a week starting in August 2014. The new pick-up day will be weekly and on Tuesdays only. Recycling, yard waste, and heavy garbage pick-up will remain the same. All residents will receive a new 96-gallon garbage cart. You may call Elon Administrative Offices at 336-584-3601 for questions and comments.
