9 a.m.–2 p.m.
Veteran’s Memorial Park, Mount Airy
Rain or shine

Surry County residents can bring unwanted, hard-to-dispose-of items for safe disposal during this event. Disposal is absolutely FREE.

Items that may be brought are:

paints, oils, paint stripper, acids, pesticides, thinners, weed killers, solvents, drain solvents, antifreeze, gasoline, pool chemicals, dry cell batteries

Items that will NOT be accepted:

ammunitions, radioactive, unidentified materials, explosives, medicine and syringes, LP and propane, gas cylinders, infectious waste, automotive type batteries

All containers should be labeled. Lids should be closed tightly and any glass bottle containers need to be cushioned for the ride to the part to prevent breakage. This disposal day is for household products only. The only exception is pesticides. Commercial and household pesticides will be accepted.

This program was made possible by Surry County Public Works, N.C. Cooperative Extension, Surry County Center, and N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
