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 (permit/sticker required for use) located across from Nags Head's Public Works administrative office.
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.
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
Option 2 - Bulk Item/Brush Drop-Off Yard
All year long items can be dropped off at Nags Head’s Bulk Item/Brush Drop-Off Yard on Lark Avenue (turn west on Eighth Street and then left onto Lark Avenue). The yard will be on the left, across from Nags Head Public Works. Use of the yard requires a Town-issued sticker, which can be obtained at the Public Works office. Also, you may mail your completed application (PDF) along with a copy of your vehicle registration and proof of residency. If you choose the mail-in option and would like for us to mail the sticker back to you a postage stamp must be included with your letter. The address is Nags Head Public Works, PO Box 99, Nags Head, NC 27959.
