Waste Disposal Resources
Are you thinking about cleaning out the garage, storage shed, or basement? Here are some tips for safely getting rid of unwanted items around your house. Many of these items are considered household hazardous waste, and should never be dumped on the ground or near a body of water, or poured down a sink, toilet, or storm drain. Always check the product label first for disposal options and guidelines.
Contact the store listed or visit their website for specific instructions related to recycling. Some stores have daily item limits, fees associated with some items, or a purchase requirement, but most listed offer free recycling. Thanks to a new contract with Davie County, Davie residents can now take many items to 3RC for disposal at no cost to them. To find a complete list of accepted items and guidelines visit the 3RC EnvrioStation website. Visit Earth 911 for a convenient search tool, or call 1-800-Cleanup to find recycling locations for a range of products. Contact N.C. Cooperative Extension, Davie County Center at 336-753-6100 for additional questions.
