​Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Landfills

 What is Construction Debris?  Also called C&D, it is generally the material that is generated from construction activity.  Lumber, bricks, shingles, cabinets, doors, etc.

What is a Construction & Debris Landfill?  All landfills must be permitted by the NC Department of Environmental Quality and receive routine inspections and follow a strict operating plan.

Construction & Demolition Debris and Bulky Waste

Mecklenburg County will accept up to 10 cubic yard sized loads of C&D at any of its Full Service Sites.  As a guide, a  full pick up truck is about 3 cubic yards.

* Full-service drop-off centers accept only small loads (pickup truck size) of Drywall and concrete.

Loads that are  10 cubic yards or larger must be taken directly to the Foxhole Landfill.  

   **If shingles are brought in on a trailer less than 12 feet, they can make up no more than 50% of the materials being disposed of. If the shingles are more than 50% of the load, they must be taken to the Foxhole Landfill Mondays-Fridays only.

The Foxhole Landfill is open Monday thru Fridays : 7 am to 4 pm, and closed Saturdays and Sundays. The landfill is located at 17131 Lancaster Highway.
