Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Event

Saturday, October 21, 2023

The Carteret County Solid Waste Division is encouraging Carteret County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials in a safe and environmentally conscious way at an upcoming household hazardous waste recycling event.

This event will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, October 21, at the Carteret County Health Department parking lot at 3820 Bridges Street, Morehead City.

Staff will be onsite to collect small quantities of waste products such as cooking oil, automotive fluids (gasoline, used motor oil, anti-freeze), lawn and gardening pesticides, batteries, and paint. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, gas cylinders, commercial waste, radioactive waste, ammunition, and explosives are prohibited.

Staff at the event will be offering convenient drive-thru disposal of items so participants can remain inside their vehicles. The waste recycling event is available to Carteret County residents only with proof of residency.

The Coastal Environmental Partnership (CEP) is a public solid waste management authority that serves Carteret, Craven, and Pamlico counties. CEP provides residents with an environmentally sound and cost-effective system of solid waste disposal and sponsors a series of household hazardous waste collection days in each of the three counties.

For more information about this event, or to find out about future collection events, visit or call the Carteret County Public Works Department at (252) 648-7878. You can also call Somer Peede, CEP outreach coordinator, at (252) 633-1564 or e-mail
