UPDATE:  Dare County plans large-item pickup for October

The Dare County Sanitation Department will be conducting a large item household pick-up for residential customers only. No commercial business debris will be picked up.

Materials must be at curbside no later than 6 a.m. on the date of collection. There will not be a second day pick-up.

Large item household pick-ups on Hatteras Island are scheduled for:
  • Tuesday, Oct. 27, Hatteras, Frisco and Buxton
  • Wednesday, Oct. 28, Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo and Avon.
Please do not interfere with county employees picking up large items.

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

On this large item pick-up, 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, etc., 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 an item you placed on the roadside, it has been rejected and must be disposed of at your expense.

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