The Transfer Station in Hampstead does not have Solid Waste Stickers available on Saturdays.
Solid Waste Stickers are only available Monday – Friday from 8am to 4pm.
The new 2023 trash stickers should be received in the mail by May 15th if your taxes were paid by January 1st in full including the Solid Waste Fee. You are ONLY allotted the 2 mailed stickers but can purchase one additional decal at $40.00 by coming into our Burgaw office or visiting the transfer station. The decals will be mailed to the address that you have on file with the tax office as of January 1st, 2023. If your taxes were paid late or you had a payment arrangement that has been paid in full, please bring proof of payment to collect stickers. If you were not charged the $220.00 in your tax bill, you can pay at the office and receive the stickers.
If you received Recycle Only stickers you may upgrade to Full Use at Hampstead Transfer Station Scale House and the Burgaw Utilities Office by paying the remining balance of $110.00 and we will provide you with a Full Use sticker.
Recycle Only – your tax bill Solid Waste fee is coded Reduced, you paid an annual fee of $110.00 which allows recycling only. (Reduced code is listed on your tax bill because the tax office received a statement from private trash hauler indicating you were a customer receiving such a service).
The two solid waste sticker types include a Full Use Sticker and a Recycle Only Sticker. The type sticker you receive is based on the Solid waste Fee you paid with your tax bill. If your tax bill Solid Waste Fee is coded Full Use, you paid an annual fee of $220.00 which allows full use of the convenience sites.
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. 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.
