Representing the property owners of Holden Beach, NC

Board of Commissioners’ Meeting Agenda December 2018


The Town of Holden Beach Board of Commissioners will meet Tuesday, December 18 for a Special Meeting at 10:00 AM and hold their regular monthly meeting at 7:00 PM.

The Special Meeting is about changes to how Solid Waste (trash and recyclables) are handled and how to charge for roll-outs and roll-backs. Click here for the Special Meeting Packet

HBPOA strongly encourages our members to read the proposed ordinance and Roll-back information included in the Special Meeting Packet and determine how these changes would apply to your situation.  Note that there would be fines for rolling your cans out early or not rolling back in a timely manner.  The current trash can roll-back along Ocean Boulevard is being eliminated and may be replaced with a new service, though that is still under discussion as is how to pay for the service.  Other changes are also proposed.

Highlights at the evening regular meeting include a possible vote on the changes to the Solid Waste ordinance and implementing new roll -out and -back fees for trash cans, as well as hiring a lobbyist, and discussing the Lockwood Folly dredging issues.   Click here for the meeting packet.

HBPOA will be at both meetings and an update of the changes will be included in the monthly Commissioners Meeting Summary.  If you have questions or comments about the ordinance you may contact HBPOA at HBPOA@hotmail.com or the Commissioners by clicking here:  Commissioner Contact Information


  1. Mr. Tart has obviously put some time and thought in to the solid waste dilemma. I, too, am a part time resident, full time home owner who pays taxes without voting privileges. Mr. Tart summed up perfectly the situation from a part time resident’s perspective. I think Mr. Tart offers an excellent solution. Yes, this service will increase the town’s budget, however I believe more residents will use the roll in and out service than the residents that use the dog park, or playground. It is nice to have these amenities however in the town’s priorities TRASH is everyone’s concern. We all create trash! I really liked the suggestion for marking a marker for when trash and recyclables need to be rolled out to the street. A great suggestion!

    The town can create another JOB! if the vendor is unwilling to include this service in their contract.

    I understand not everyone is going to be happy with the final solution, but I am asking you take into consideration those of us who come as often as we can but not necessarily on the trash schedule.

    I roll to street when I leave and roll back in when I return, whether it has been two days, two weeks or two months. We do not rent. We own. No full time residents at my end of the street. After the last rain storm I found my trash and recyclable containers across the street in a field. I brought them home, cleaned them up, filled them up after a week at the beach, and rolled them back out to the street.

    One last note, a roll in and out program may also decrease container theft. Leaving our containers out has caused some to permanently roll away.

  2. if a three bedroom house has to have 2 trash cans and one cannot be a recycle one, then I will cancel my recycles. WE live here a little over 6 months and rent the rest of the year. This might effect some of the other recycles receptacles as well.
