Bulk Trash

There are two options available to Nags Head property owners to dispose of mattresses, furniture, white goods, or yard brush:  curbside collection, available October 1 through March 31 and  a bulk/brush drop-off yard located across from Nags Head's Public Works administrative office.

  1. Option 1 Curbside Collection
  2. Option 2 Bulk/Brush Drop-Off


The Town conducts neighborhood bulk item/brush sweeps each month from October 1 through March 31 for our homeowners and residents. Collection days will be Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and possibly Fridays during each monthly sweep. To ensure your items are picked up during the monthly sweep, please place your items out in the beginning of each month.

Bulk Item Pick Up March 2012

The Town collects brush and limbs, large/bulky items such as stoves, refrigerators, water heaters, sofas, etc. which cannot normally be loaded into the back of a standard garbage truck. Items must be placed in the right of way, but off the pavement, front of your property prior to collection. Bulk, brush and metal must be placed in separate piles. We do NOT collect items from unimproved lots.

Please contact Public Works at 252-441-1122 for more information
