Household Hazardous Waste Collection

The Brunswick County Solid Waste Department is in the process of implementing a permanent household hazardous waste (HHW) collection at the county’s landfill site. The two annual events in Shallotte and Southport are discontinued. We are hoping to have this facility opened during the spring of 2020. Please email operation.services@brunswickcountync.gov to be added to an email list to be notified when this program is scheduled to begin.

Check the event calendar for upcoming events.
