Green Waste:
The City of Havelock picks up waste generated by residential lawn and garden maintenance. Limbs from ordinary pruning, not larger than 60″ long and 5″ in diameter will be collected. Do not pile yard waste in  your drainage ditch or in a position where it can be blown or pushed into the ditch. Such obstruction is against the City Code of Ordinances.
Bulk and Brown Waste: The City of Havelock picks up things like mattresses, furniture, electronics, carpet, kitchen cabinets, above ground pool components, swing sets, wire, fencing, bicycles, water heaters, stoves, and refrigerators.

If Waste Industries cannot pick up something you have left as trash, they will leave a tag on it that explains proper disposal of the item. A copy of that tag is kept on file.
If you have excess trash, you can purchase trash stickers and take excess trash to the Convenience Centers. The City maintains a supply of trash stickers for sale at Customer Service and will NOT buy back unused stickers.

  • Construction material or debris
  • Whole trees or logs
