Curbside Collection Services

The Town provides weekly service for trash. Recyclables, and yard waste are collected on the same day but every other week. Please refer to the Solid Waste Calendar above for your pick up schedule as well as holidays that will cause a one day delay in service. 

For new start up service for a new home (new construction) set-up please call the Town of Indian Trail at 704-821-5401

Changes in Recycling

Recent changes in recycling, with China and other countries severely restricting the types of recyclables they will purchase, have changed the way municipalities across the country handle their recyclable waste.
