Televisions & Computer Equipment

In July of 2010, the State of North Carolina banned televisions and computer equipment from being disposed in landfills due to the containment of toxic materials. Computer equipment includes the following: computers (laptop and desktop), monitors, printers & scanners. As an additional service since 2012, City residents may bring these items to the Reidsville Material Drop-Off Center during normal business hours.

In addition, many retailers and electronics manufacturers operate their own recycling programs and can be contacted individually for more information.

Construction & Remodeling Waste (Building Materials): This self-service container is intended for small scale remodeling jobs performed by the residents of the property, NOT contractors or commercial builders. The following items are NOT ALLOWED (due to landfill restrictions):

  • No liquids, paints or fluids of any kind
  • No pressure cylinders (gas grill) or canisters
  • No motors, engines or car parts
  • No hazardous wastes or filters
  • No metal objects
  • No batteries
  • No tires
  • No masonry
  • No TVs or computers
  • No cardboard
  • No yard waste
  • No asbestos
  • No earth or dirt
  • No furniture or carpet

Oil:  Used motor oil can be recycled and should never be dumped down the storm drain, which pollutes our water.  Put the oil in clean plastic containers for easy pouring into the waste oil tank at the Reidsville Material Drop-Off Center. The City will accept used cooking oil and grease as well as used motor oil filters.
