Municipal Curbside Collection

Mecklenburg County DOES NOT collect curbside trash or recycling.  

Curbside collection is performed by either the City of Charlotte or one of the towns.

If you have questions regarding a MISSED collection or would like to request a SPECIAL COLLECTION, such as bulky trash, dead animals, old televisions, etc., contact the community where you live using the information shown below.

If you live in an unincorporated area of Mecklenburg County, and you desire curbside collection, you will need to contract a residential hauling company. See our list of approved haulers.

Mecklenburg County residents ALL follow the same guidelines on what can and cannot be recycled at your home.  While the County does NOT COLLECT your materials, the County does PROCESS them at our Materials Recovery Facility. So please remember to RECYCLE RIGHT and only recycle curbside the items that we can process.  Help us STOP wishful recycling. Unacceptable items contaminate the recyclables making whole loads unacceptable to our end users.
