Waste Collection & Recycling
Bulky items, mattresses and furniture within the Town of Selma are picked up on Monday by a garbage truck. One hopper-full of furniture which is about the size of two love seats or a mattress and box spring will be picked-up on Monday. These items may be set out no earlier than 7PM Sunday and no later than 7AM Monday for collection. Property owners setting furniture out earlier than the stated time are subject to fines. There is a $150 fee for the Town to haul excessive amounts of household furnishings. Any quantity of household furnishings with a volume larger than the hopper of the garbage truck will result in the property owner being charged a hauling fee by the Town. Residents can take excessive amounts of solid waste to the Johnston County landfill Monday-Saturday at the rate of $35 per ton. A decal is not needed to dispose of waste at the Johnston County landfill.
