  • February 2024 - Large Item Pickup

    We'd like to make you aware that large item pickup dates have been set by Dare County.

    Large item pickup for unincorporated areas of Dare County

    The Dare County Public Works Department has announced that large item pickup for the unincorporated areas of Dare County* will begin on Monday, March 18, 2024 and run continuously for approximately 12-15 days.

    The large item pickup will be performed by a private contractor, Southern Disaster Recovery, and there will be a strict one pass only enforced due to budgetary and time constraints. Citizens are therefore asked to pay close attention to the guidelines below that indicate which specific types of items will be accepted during the upcoming large item pickup and should place their items on the roadside in piles that are sorted by type.

    The exact dates upon which items will be collected from specific locations throughout the unincorporated areas of Dare County will be determined by the private contractor; therefore, the Dare County Public Works Department will be unable to provide specific information regarding pickup dates and locations for each area in advance of the collection period.

    In order to ensure all of your accepted items are picked up on the first and only pass, please do not place any materials on the roadside after the start of the large item pickup, which is Monday, March 18, 2024.  Please note that your items will remain at the roadside throughout the duration of the large item pickup period (until the private contractor reaches your area and is able to collect them). If the private contractor does not take an item you placed on the roadside by the conclusion of the 12- to 15-day collection period, it has been rejected and therefore must be disposed of at your own expense.

    This one pass only large item pickup will only take place in unincorporated areas of Dare County**, which includes the following communities: Roanoke Island - (unincorporated areas of Manteo, as well as Wanchese, Skyco and Mashoes)

    Accepted Items:

    • Used automobile tires
    • Automobile radiators
    • Scrap metals (rims, motor parts, etc.)
    • Appliances (please remove the doors from refrigerators)
    • Furniture, mattresses and box springs
    • All items must be sorted into separate piles based on their type.

    Prohibited Items: The following items will not be collected:

    • Old clothing and shoes
    • Cardboard
    • Tree limbs, stumps, leaves and yard-clearing debris
    • Construction/demolition materials (such as lumber, toilets, windows and doors, etc.)
    • Boats, trailers and jet skis
    • Propane tanks and fire extinguishers
    • Any hazardous materials (oil-based paint, pesticides, etc.)

    The Dare County Public Works Department will host a household hazardous waste collection event in three separate locations from Thursday, May 9, 2024 through Saturday, May 11, 2024. All normal household trash must be disposed of within regular black trash bins and will not be accepted as part of the large item pickup.


    • Prohibited materials, mixed piles and items that are improperly sorted will not be collected.
    • If the private contractor does not take an item you placed on the roadside, it has been rejected and therefore must be disposed of at your own expense.
    • Please take pride in your home and respect your neighbors. Do not leave any trash at the roadside expecting it to be picked up.
    • Please do not interfere with the private contractor picking up large items. If large item pickup falls on your regular trash collection day, please do not block the trash bin with any other items.
    • Do not stack or lean items on fire hydrants, water meters, mailboxes or other structures that would make collection and access to these essential services difficult.
    • Citizens are also asked to be mindful of any overhead power lines in their area and to avoid placing items in a location where the collection trucks could be in danger of coming into contact with them.

    Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event:  During this event, citizens can drop off motor oil in spill-proof containers, along with any paint chemicals, for safe disposal at the following locations:  

    Manteo Collection: Dare County Public Works (1018 Driftwood Drive), 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2024.
