Iredell County Solid Waste will be hosting their bi-annual Household Hazardous Waste collection event on Saturday, September 30th from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event will take place at the Solid Waste Facility located at 354 Twin Oaks Road in Statesville.  No commercial waste or waste generated outside of Iredell County will be accepted.  No pre-staging is allowed.  Proof of Iredell County residency is required. 

Last year, 326 households participated and over 24,000 pounds of toxic material was disposed of during the half-day event.  Iredell County Solid Waste also recovered 8,000 pounds of latex paint for use in the paint swap shop – which is roughly 960 gallons of paint.  This year, latex paint disposal is limited to 15 cans per household at the event.  Since latex paint is not considered hazardous when it is non-flowable, citizens are urged to dry it up and throw it out!
