Dare large household pickup will be in October

The Dare County Sanitation Department will be conducting a large household pickup for residential customers only during the month of October.

The schedule is:

     • Oct. 4, Thursday -- Manns Harbor, East Lake, and Stumpy Point
     • Oct. 9, Tuesday -- Hatteras, Frisco, and Buxton
     • Oct. 10,  Wednesday -- Avon, Salvo, Waves, and Rodanthe
     • Oct. 16,  Tuesday -- Kitty Hawk
     • Oct. 17,  Wednesday -- Colington
     • Oct. 23,  Tuesday -- Martins Point
     • Oct. 24, Wednesday -- Manteo, Wanchese

If large item pick-up falls on your regular garbage collection day, please do not block the garbage container.

Materials must be at curbside no later than 6 a.m. on the date of collection. There will not be a second-day pickup.
On this special pickup, the county will collect the following recyclable items -- used auto tires, used motor oil (only in spill-proof containers), auto radiators, scrap metals (rims, motor parts), appliances, furniture, and mattresses and box springs. Please remove doors from refrigerators.

These items will not be collected -- old clothes, shoes, cardboard, tree limbs, stumps, leaves, any yard-clearing debris, construction/demolition materials such as lumber, toilets, windows, doors, etc., any hazardous materials (oil based paint, pesticides, etc.) Water-based paint can be picked up but must be dried out.

All normal household garbage must be disposed of in your black can.

Please do not place items for the county large-item pickup at the roadside until the day before.  If the county does not take an item or items you placed on the roadside, it has been rejected and must be disposed of at your own expense.

Dare County asks that all residents take pride in their homes and respect their neighbors and not leave trash on the roadside expecting that it will be picked up.

The Town of Southern Shores will be conducting its own pickup. Please contact the town for further information. Dare County Sanitation does not service the Town of Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, and Duck. Please contact towns for information regarding their services.
