Accepted Materials for Recycling

Banned Materials

Beginning with Senate Bill 111 in 1989, and in subsequent legislation, the North Carolina General Assembly has established disposal bans on a wide range of materials. New disposal bans will come into effect October 1, 2009, on used oil filters, plastic bottles and wooden pallets. Learn more about how to comply with the October disposal bans and about some of the other materials banned under North Carolina General Statute 130A-309.10(f) (PDF).
