Recycle Right Curbside Pickup
While Mecklenburg County has a robust recycling program, there are still things you should never put in your curbside recycling cart . These non-recyclable items, listed at the bottom of this page, are accepted at any of our full-service drop-off centers as waste.
We strive to recycle many items; however we do not accept everything that displays the recycle symbol. Mecklenburg County does not follow the plastic numbering system, as many products are incorrectly numbered. Always refer to the acceptable list below for acceptable item types.
Remember, When in Doubt, Leave it Out!
Accepted items for Curbside Recycling:
DO NOT bag recyclables in plastic bags!
