Call to Action!!   RE:   Weekly Trash/Recycling Disposal

Good morning folks!   As a reminder, if you wish to continue or sign up for weekly trash/recycling service, you must sign up with the town’s new contracted provider, GFL Environmental.   Instructions on how to do so are below.   The Town’s contract with Republic is coming to an end on June 30th.   Republic will pick up your trash/recycle bins on Wednesday, 6/29.  

To ensure a smooth transition for you and your family, you must call or go to their website to register as a GFL customer.    This is not something that will automatically occur for you.   You must register.  

Please call GFL at 336-668-3712 between the hours of 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday to speak with one of GLF’s local representatives that can assist you in setting up service.  

If you prefer you can visit GFL’s website at  As you are signing up GFL will provide you with your new day of service and any additional information you may require.

In speaking with GFL this past Friday, about 1,000 customers have signed up.    This is still well short of the 1,700 customers Republic has today.   Please call GFL today and sign up.   As you can see in the picture, GFL is staging the new trash/recycle bins at Town Hall and will begin distribution to Stokesdale customers in the next two weeks.   They will only distribute cans to those who have signed up.

Thank you!
