The Haywood County Solid Waste Department will be holding a spring Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event on Sunday, May 26th from 9 am until 4 pm at the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) located at 278 Recycle Rd, Clyde. 

During this event, Haywood County residents are encouraged to drop off these household pollutants free of charge. Haywood County has partnered with EcoFLo who will have representatives on hand to collect the following non pesticide items: 


Latex paint in cans

Mixed solvents

Propane tanks (grill and camp size only please)

Metallic Mercury

Mercury debris

Alkaline cleaners

Acid cleaners

Paint related materials

Fire extinguishers

Small cylinders

Items that are regularly collected at the Material Recovery Center can also be brought to this event.  They include:

Lead acid batteries

Alkaline batteries

NiCad batteries

Lithium batteries

Fluorescent bulbs (tubes and compacts)

There will be another collection day on May 9th at the NC Extension office located on Raccoon Road Waynesville to accept only pesticides. 

Medications and pharmaceutical can be disposed of at year around collection sites located at each of the Police Departments and Sheriff’s Office.

“This event is a great and free way to dispose of these materials’” stated Haywood County Recycling Coordinator, Zondra Kuykendall.  “If you have an item and are unsure if EcoFlo can accept it, please call our office at (828) 356-2138 before the event so we can verify”, she continued. “If they don’t collect the material, maybe we can help find a solution.”

This event is only for Haywood County residents. Please don’t bring or drop-off items prior to the event. Early drop-offs could incur fees and fines. 

For additional information on the event, contact Zondra Kuykendall at (828) 356-2138 or email
