Solid Waste Decal Purchase Procedures for County Residents in Incorporated Areas

Pender County residents in incorporated areas do not receive Pender County Solid Waste decals, due to receiving (and paying for) solid waste services from their municipality. These residents are not charged a solid waste availability fee by Pender County. However, if residents in incorporated areas desire to utilize Pender County Solid Waste Convenience Center sites, they can pay the appropriate availability fee for the Full or Recycle-only decals to gain access. The fee charged for decals is for the complete period of service remaining for the decal. In other words, if purchased in April 2021 (when the new 2-year decal was issued), an incorporated area resident would pay for 2 years of service ($440 for Full Use, $220 for Recycle-only). This fee will be pro-rated if purchased later during the decal’s stated term. All sales are final, and no refunds will be issued. If county decals are purchased, any solid waste fees paid to a municipality will NOT be affected. You will NOT receive a refund of your town’s fees and will still have to pay your town’s fees in the future.

New solid waste stickers will be available in April 2021 for purchase by Town residents in business hours at  Hampstead Annex (910) 270-6704, Transfer Station Scale House (910) 270-5011, Burgaw Utilities Office (910) 259-1570.
