It varies and depends on where you live within the county.
According to Joe Suleyman, director of the New Hanover County Department of Environmental Management, a resident’s location will determine if they receive pick-up or if they have to haul their recyclable items to a drop-off site.
“Residential curbside collection of recyclables is handled by the homeowner’s chosen waste hauling company on a subscription basis in the unincorporated areas of the County,” said Suleyman. “If a resident chooses to use one of the seven recycling drop-off sites in the County, those sites are serviced by New Hanover County’s Environmental Management Department.”
For more information on hours and locations of drop-off sites, as well as advice on how to properly dispose of various household items for recycling, go to the NHC Department of Environmental Management Web site at www.nhcgov.com/Environmental/Pages/default.aspx.
