Bulk waste is defined as "Furniture or other items where large size precludes or complicates handling by normal solid waste collection, procession, or disposal methods."
This may include swing sets, bicycles (without tires), scrap metal, copper, and other similar items. The town is no longer collecting "white goods" such as refrigerators, stoves and ranges, water heaters, or freezers. Citizens can take these items to the North Mecklenburg Recycling Center located off Highway 21 in Huntersville. This center also accepts hazardous waste and batteries. Check their website for details on what they do and do not accept.
