Mecklenburg County offers free Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) disposal to its residents living in Charlotte, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville. The County contracts with ECOFLO to maintain collection sites at four recycling centers (see below). Hazardous materials brought in are collected and evaluated for recycling, treatment, or proper disposal by ECOFLO. By disposing of household hazardous waste properly, citizens help to protect our water supply and our natural resources. 

Most HHW may be taken the North Mecklenburg Recycling Center, Hickory Grove Recycling Center, West Mecklenburg Recycling Center and Foxhole Recycling Center where it is collected by ECOFLO, a licensed HHW transfer, storage and disposal facility. Learn how to recognize and properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste in Mecklenburg by downloading these brochures.
