BURGAW – Solid waste stickers for 2019– 2020 will be mailed to residents within the unincorporated areas of Pender County in mid-March.
“The current stickers will be honored at all the convenience sites through March 31,” said Kenny Keel, Pender County Utilities director. “All new stickers should be distributed by March 31.”
As with the previous sticker issuance, two sticker types will be available. Residents in unincorporated areas of Pender County will receive either FULL or RECYCLE sticker that corresponds with the amount paid on their tax bill for the annual solid waste fee.
“Since the solid waste fee is paid with your taxes, it was necessary to delay sticker issuance until after the final tax year payment deadline,” stated Keel. “This will help with a more accurate accounting of the solid waste fee payment received from property owners.”
Taxpayers may identify the fees paid by looking at their tax bill. The S64 fee of $220/year is for FULL USE, permitting a resident to use the convenience sites for household trash and recycling. Code S63 on the tax bill with a fee of $110/year is for RECYCLE ONLY.
