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

On this special pickup, Dare 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.

The following 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 your pickup will be held. If the county does not take items you placed on the roadside, they have been rejected and must be disposed of at your expense.

Please do not leave trash at the roadside expecting it to be picked up.
