Convenience Centers: Solid Waste District
The county operates 13 convenience centers (collection sites) in the Wilson County Solid Waste District. Incorporated towns and cities are not included in the District. The convenience centers only accept household solid waste produced by residents of the District. Commercial and industrial solid waste is not accepted at the convenience centers.
A permit "hanger" is issued to each county resident in the solid waste district that pays the $35 annual solid waste availability fee (SWAF). Access to the convenience centers is only provided to customers that live in the district and display a valid permit issued to them.
