Alternatives to Disposal

We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of materials that in many cases can be recycled, repurposed, used to produce electrical power, or rendered inert. We encourage residents to contact us with any additional information they may have to help us expand this list.

If you own a local business that provides recycling services to the public, we’d be happy to include your contact information on our site. Please call 910-798-4403.

You can bring any type of unwanted aerosol container to the County’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility. Visit the Household Hazardous Waste Page for more information.

A can is empty and safe for disposal if you no longer hear air being released from the container. Before transporting partially full aerosol cans, remove the plastic nozzle to prevent accidental release of the contents.
