Mecklenburg County Wipe Out Waste Day

Mecklenburg County Wipe Out Waste Day will be held Saturday, November 13, 9:00 a.m. – Noon; at all 4 Mecklenburg County Recycling Centers.

County Full-Service Recycling Centers are located at:

North Mecklenburg Recycling Center and Yard Waste

West Mecklenburg Recycling Center

In the new era where protecting personal information and the environment is equally important, there is a much better solution to getting rid of that dangerous stuff, and on the upcoming Wipe Out Waste (WOW) Day, residents can do it safely and for free thanks to Mecklenburg County Solid Waste.
All four Mecklenburg County Full Service Recycling Centers will be shredding household documents for no charge on Saturday, Nov. 13 from 9 a.m. until noon as part of a partnership with City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services. Document destruction specialists Shred-it, Automated Shredding Inc. and document management experts DataChambers will be on hand — along with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department — to ensure that your documents are disposed of safely and securely. The first 50 residents to bring items to each recycling center will receive special giveaways.

Those other household hazardous wastes, such as old paint, chemicals, and batteries, will also be accepted for safe disposal. Not sure what to bring? Visit or call E. Nadine Ford at 704.201.2201 for detailed information about what you can bring for disposal.
