Waste and Brush Disposal
Effective August 1, 2020 - County residents can now dispose of brush and wood waste less than 6" in diameter at White Oak Landfill free of charge.
All brush over 6" in diameter, stumps, non-county residents and commercial wood waste disposal (contractors and haulers) will continue to be charged at the posted rates.
Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) - requires special disposal
Haywood County is not certified to collect these materials on a daily basis so our contractor schedules periodic collection events run by certified HHW collection companies in order to properly collect and dispose of these materials. Events will be announced on our Upcoming Events Page and in the local newspaper.
HHW consists of oil-based paints, paint related items, gasoline, cleaning chemicals, pesticides and other common chemicals used around your house.
Water based paints are the exception to this rule. Paint cans can be dried out using kitty litter, sawdust or sand. Once the paint has hardened, it can be disposed of in your household garbage.
