News Release from New Hanover County:
(New Hanover County) – Residents of New Hanover County can begin taking yard waste to the county landfill free of charge beginning Thursday, June 27, as part of an innovative, multi-phase pilot program.
Yard waste, including tree trimmings, leaves, grass clippings, and the like will be accepted from the public during normal business hours at the landfill. The site is located at 5210 U.S. Highway 421 North.
The pilot program is intended to eventually address a service gap in the unincorporated areas, where curbside yard waste collection programs do not exist. Data gathered from each stage of the pilot program will be crucial to developing a collection program to serve residents in those areas.
