BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Brunswick County residents will be able to get rid of unwanted items that are not typically picked up with regular trash service this week.
Brunswick County's fall clean-up week started today. Residents can dispose of all materials, except regular household trash and land clearing debris, at the county landfill in Bolivia... for free.
The event is designed to encourage proper disposal of waste and save people money in the process. There will also be a household hazardous waste collection, a clothes drive and even an electronic recycling event at South Brunswick Middle School on Saturday.
Even though it's the first day, a lot of people have been taking advantage of the service.
"It's been busy, it's been very busy. A lot of people are utilizing this, people are getting used to it and are looking forward to it every spring and every fall," said Kimberly Thompson of Brunswick County Solid Waste & Recycling.
Businesses and anyone driving commercial vehicles and trailers will be charged the regular fees. The event is only for Brunswick County residents, so make sure you have proof of residency to show at the landfill.
Landfill hours are Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 4 pm.
