Household Hazardous Waste

Onslow County Solid Waste hosts two collection events a year for Residential Household Hazardous Waste.  We offer this service for our citizens in order to divert waste from our Landfill and make sure our environment is kept safe from potential hazards and toxins.  Due to regulations and collection permits, we are currently only able to hold these events certain times a year, for a small period of time.  We also partner with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and the Onslow County Sheriff's Department for disposal of pesticides, herbicides, and prescription drugs.

Common Household Hazardous Items:

  • paint and paint related material
  • pool chemicals
  • household cleaners and chemicals
  • aerosols
  • fluorescent light bulbs
  • batteries
  • gasoline
  • anti-freeze
  • motor oil
  • pesticides/herbicides
  • prescription drugs
