The City of Wilmington operates a residential Refuse Collection Service for the benefit and convenience of its residents. Service details and regulations governing the collection of garbage, trash, and other refuse are listed below. In order for the City to provide the best possible service to all customers, it is important that each resident understand and follow the rules and guidelines.
The employees of the Refuse Collection Department work hard to provide good, reliable, year round service, often under difficult weather conditions. Our goal is to furnish high quality service at a reasonable cost. With your consideration and help, we can continue to realize this goal.
