Solid Waste Decal Requirements End on July 1st

June 7, 2024


For Immediate Release:


Smithfield, N.C. - From July 1 onwards, Johnston County residents will no longer need to purchase or display decals to dispose of their household garbage at any of the 12 Convenience Center sites. This change is part of our ongoing efforts to simplify waste disposal and provide better access to the County's Solid Waste Convenience Centers. 

The decision to end the decal program was made by the Board of Commissioners to better serve our community, making it easier for all residents to dispose of household waste properly. The move will also help ensure that more household garbage reaches the landfill, reducing the likelihood of illegal dumping and keeping our roadsides cleaner. The Johnston County Landfill operations will remain unchanged, continuing to provide essential services under the current set of rules and regulations.

The County's recycling program will continue to be available to all residents at no charge. We encourage everyone to make use of the recycling services at the Solid Waste Convenience Center Sites to help protect our environment and reduce waste.

We appreciate your cooperation and support as we transition to this new system. For more information about the end of the decal program and other waste disposal services, please contact the Johnston County Solid Waste Department at 919-938-4750 or visit the Solid waste website. Thank you for helping us maintain a beautiful and vibrant Johnston County.
