​​​​​​​Recycl​ing​​ Drop-Off Centers for Small Businesses

 The Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Department offers commercial drop-off centers to business parks and small business owners that are interested in promoting recycling in their area. 

These centers are free for the public to use, and accept the same recyclable materials as the County's Residential Recycling Programs.
