It is spring cleaning season again! If you have piles of products you are not sure how to dispose of, N.C. Cooperative Extension of Currituck County has the event for you. On March 20, 2021, a household hazardous waste disposal day will be held to help assist in this year’s spring cleaning. All of those old paint cans that have been lying in the corner of the garage, the old sticky pesticide containers on the shelf in the shed, and the old batteries rolling around in the drawer can be disposed of, and much more.

The Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day will be held at two different locations and two different times in Currituck. The first location is at the Judicial Center Complex, 2801 Caratoke Hwy, Currituck NC from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The second location is at the Southern Outer Banks Water Plant, 734 Ocean Trail, Corolla NC from 9 a.m. to noon. These events will be held rain or shine so there is no excuse to hold onto those household hazardous waste another year!
