Mecklenburg County residents and businesses can self-haul their Yard Debris to any of the Mecklenburg County Full-Service Centers for a fee based on the amount of material. This is a per visit and per unit fee.
As a county resident, you may have curbside Yard Debris collection where you live. Mecklenburg County DOES NOT collect any materials curbside. Your City or Town or paid waste licensed hauler does that for you. If you have materials that you self haul to a Mecklenburg County Full-Service Center, the below price schedule will apply.
If you self haul to a Mecklenburg County Full-Service Center, we prefer you bring the material in Kraft paper bags. These bags are compostable and break down without contaminating the finished composted product.
We DO NOT accept yard debris in plastic bags. Plastic bags DO NOT break down, and are a contaminant in the finished composted product. Please do not use plastic bags.
