Kure Beach officials say they will not pick up electronics (televisions, computers, printers, etc).
Vegetation must be of the non-commercial yard debris type, not vegetation from lot clearing. Brush will need to be separated from all other types of debris and should not be bagged.
Residents should place their debris in the right of way in front of their home as early as possible that week, but no later than 7:00 am Thursday morning.
Regular charges will apply to items put out before March 30 and after 7:00 Thursday, April 5, 2018.
If you have any questions about pick up, please call the Public Works Department at 910-458-5816.
For the items not covered in the free pickup schedule, New Hanover County is encouraging residents to safely dispose of toxic materials with its mobile collection unit, the HazWagon. The HazWagon is  stationed at three different locations to collect household hazardous waste and electronics free of charge.
Residents can bring items to the following locations each week:
• Mondays at the Ogden Park ball fields, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
• Wednesdays at Wrightsville Beach Municipal Complex, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
• Fridays at the Carolina Beach Mike Chappell Park (in the south side of the park across from the tennis courts), from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (this is a temporary location and the final location in Carolina Beach is to be determined)
“The HazWagon was created in response to feedback from citizens who wanted a more convenient way to dispose of household hazardous waste,” said Environmental Management Director Joe Suleyman. “This waste can be harmful to our health and to the environment if it is absorbed into the ground or into our water supply. The HazWagon will make it easier for residents to do their part and divert these contaminants from the landfill.”
In addition to the HazWagon, residents can bring household hazardous waste to the permanent facility located at 3002 US Highway 421 North, Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-noon.
All collected materials are recycled, repurposed, neutralized, used for alternative power generation, or disposed of in accordance with state and federal law. Due to space limitations, no more than 10 gallons of liquid waste and no more than two TVs can be brought to the HazWagon at a time.
One gallon of motor oil can contaminate 1,000,000 gallons of fresh water. Screens on older television sets can contain up to 10 pounds of lead.
Materials collected include motor oil, TV's, computers and many other electronic devices such as cell phones.
For a complete list of materials excepted, please call 910-798-4400.
