The Dare County Department of Public Works will be conducting a large household pick-up for residential customers only. No commercial business debris will be picked up. Please do not interfere with county employees picking up large items. 

If large item pick-up falls on your regular garbage collection day, please do not block the garbage container. Be mindful of overhead power lines and try to place items in such a way that County trucks will not be in danger of coming in contact with them. Materials must be at curbside no later than 6:00 am on the date of collection. There will not be a second day pick-up. Please do not place items for large item pick-up at the roadside until the day before your pick-up will be held. If the county does not take an item(s) you placed on the roadside, it has been rejected and must be disposed of at your own expense. Take pride in your home and respect your neighbors. Do not leave trash at the roadside expecting it to be picked up.

On this special pick-up, 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, 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.
