Keeping Up With the Clerk
By Charles Rocci
Pine Knoll Shores Town Clerk
Guidelines for trash and recycling in
Pine Knoll Shores
As you are likely aware, the town decided to move its municipal trash service
to Waste Removal at the start of January 2022. We are very excited for this new
partnership and hope that Pine Knoll Shores community members will see the
benefits of this transition.
As Waste Removal’s first municipal customer, we recognize that there will be
some challenges at the beginning. We hope that through steady communica
tion between the town and Waste Removal, and patience and cooperation from
residents, this will be an easy transition leading to quality service in Pine Knoll
Vvaste Removal would like to begin fielding calls for general questions; rental
cans and reports of missed service. They can be reached at 252-49S-9710.
Please note that Waste Removal begins pickup at 6:30 a.m. Property owners
are asked to have cans out the night before, but expect pickup time slightly later
than you may have grown used to.
As I write this article, we have seen one week of trash service and have already
identified one major issue with pickup that needs to be addressed immediately.
Our recycling load is full of plastic bags and is unable to be processed in recy
cling machines, forcing recyclables to go in the landfill. To address this issue, I
am going to present some general information from the town’s recycling calen
dar available for pickup at town hall, on the town website (townofpks.com/Re-
sources/Document Library/Recycling Calendar) or at tinyurl.com/2p92t923.
Here are some general tips for recycling presented on the calendar:
• No plastic bags are allowed in recycling.
• Metal cans (food, soda, etc.), plastic jugs (milk, detergent, etc.), glass (bot
tles, jars, etc.) and paper (mixed and office paper, cartons and cardboard)
can be included in all recycling.
• AU recycled containers need to be emptied and rinsed.
• Cardboard should be flattened.
• Items to keep out of recycling include aerosol cans, all batteries, ceramic
items, clothing, diapers, electronics, hazardous waste, household glass,
medical waste, plastic bags and wrap, shredded paper, scrap metal and
wood, and plastic foam (sometimes referred to as Styrofoam).

providing us with the opportunity and support to utilize the latest in technologies
and tactics to keep our community safe.
In other news, you will soon notice a new face patrolling our neighborhoods.
Jeffrey “Chase” Kearney is our newest full-time police officer. Chase comes to us
from the Wayne County sheriff’s office, where he spent the last four years as a
deputy sheriff. Chase is currently completing his field training program and will
soon be patrolling the streets on his own. Please don’t hesitate to say hello and
introduce yourself if you have the opportunity to meet him.
What’s Up With PARC?
By Jean McDanal
The final total collected for the Pine Knoll Shores Angel Tree project to benefit
wounded warriors and their families was $3,600. Thanks again to all of those
who so generously contributed.
We welcome new members Karen Murphy and Mary Cox to the Parks & Rec
reation Committee (PARC) and extend thanks to Cheryl Smith for stepping up
as chairperson and Jane Cokely for volunteering as vice chair.
The survey regarding the Turkey Trot provided good suggestions for improv
ing the event. Most folks would like to see more route monitors. We know we
need more volunteers to man all the pieces that contribute to a successful day. So
keep in mind, when we ask for volunteers to help out next year, we need you.
This year’s calendar of events is as follows:
January through March—Planning months
April—Pickleball Tournament, date to be determined
April 16—Easter Egg Hunt or Egg My Yard
May 14—Kayak for the Warriors (K4TW) Gala and Auctions
