The Solid Waste Management Department’s mission is to provide for efficient use of the sanitary landfill and to further the
county's efforts in developing future solid waste disposal programs that will conserve natural resources, reduce the volume
of waste, and dispose of non-recoverable wastes in an environmentally sound manner.
Our Wilkes Road Division operates the clean wood and yard waste collection facility to further the county's efforts in
reducing waste to the sanitary landfill.
The Operations Division operates the Container Sites/Recycling Centers, which collect solid waste from county facilities and provide recycling for household residents.
Our Planning/Environmental Enforcement Division operates the Household Hazardous Waste Facility, which provides for the
efficient, effective, and environmentally safe disposal of household hazardous waste. They also enforce local, state and
federal laws on illegal dumping and disposal of hazardous materials.
