Bulk Item/Brush Disposal 

There are two options available to Nags Head property owners to dispose of mattresses, furniture, white goods, or yard brush:  curbside collection, available October through April each year, and the bulk/brush drop-off yard (permit/sticker required for use) located across from Nags Head's Public Works administrative office.

Nags Head’s curbside collection of bulk items and brush runs from Monday, October 2, 2023 through April 30, 2024. The last day to place items at the curb will be April 30. This service is for homeowners and residents of improved lots. 

There is no on-demand collection or a waiting list (you will not need to call in). You can put your separated piles out anytime between October 2, 2023 and April 30, 2024.
