What items cannot be collected at the curb?
Computers, Televisions and Tires are all banned from North Carolina Landfills. These items can be taken to the Iredell County Transfer Station off of Highway 150 (158 MacLeod Drive) for disposal. Flat screens are free, but old tube style (CRT) televisions incur a $10 disposal fee. Tires are free up to 5 per individual with rims removed.

This material is taken free of charge at this event. The event is also held the last Saturday in September at the Twin Oaks Landfill in Statesville.
