Iredell County Solid Waste/Recycling
regarding electronics recycling
Effective as of July 1, 2013 Iredell County Solid Waste will begin charging $10 per unit for all CRT televisions and computer monitors. These are the older units that contain “picture tubes” and are required to be recycled by state law. All other units will still be accepted at no charge. Additionally CRT televisions and monitors will no longer be accepted at the West Iredell, Central or Highway 901 convenience sites. They will instead be accepted only at the Solid Waste Facility on Twin Oaks Road, Statesville and the Mooresville Transfer Station located at 158 MacLeod Drive, Mooresville. Please contact Teddy Boller at 704-928-2023 or email email@example.com for more information.

Iredell County’s newest recycling initiative is an innovative program that partners the Solid waste Department with a local paving company, Maymeade to reclaim old asphalt roofing shingles. These shingles contain high quality petroleum tars and aggregates that blend well into hot asphalt mixes. Recycling shingles benefits the county by saving landfill space. Maymeade benefits from the addition of high quality raw materials to extend their hot asphalt mix. Homeowners and roofing contractors can benefit by reduced tipping fees charged for clean recyclable shingles.
No more compost will be available until late summer or early fall 2013.
Effective immediately, all Iredell County Solid Waste Convenience Sites and Mooresville Transfer Station:
- Will not accommodate vehicles towing trailers in excess of 10' (ten feet).
- Any trailer load 10' or less should not exceed the volume of a pickup load.
- No double loads will be accepted. That is a pickup load in addition to a trailer load attached.
(does not apply to the main facility located at 354 Twin Oaks Rd., Statesville)
Solid Waste Decals
Each year Iredell County Solid Waste and Recycling issues vehicle decals to property owners and residents of Iredell County which allows them access to trash collection sites located throughout our community. These sites DO NOT accept trash from non-residents of Iredell County. Since the Iredell County Solid Waste and Recycling Department is supported by tax dollars and tipping fees, using the decals helps to keep costs down by keeping trash from other counties out of our collection sites.
The staff of the Iredell County Solid Waste and Recycling Department would like to remind property owners who use any of the county’s trash collections sites to replace their old 2011 Solid Waste Windshield decals with the new 2012 version. Iredell homeowners should have received a decal with their property tax statement which was mailed in August of this year. It is okay to apply the decal as soon as you receive it and by no later than January 1st. The decals should be applied to the lower left of the windshield of vehicles being used to haul waste.
All Solid Waste locations will have decals available and attendants will work with eligible homeowners to obtain a decal if they did not receive one or have misplaced the decal. Proof of residency will be required. Be prepared to provide a drivers license or other photo ID along with a vehicle registration, utility bill, tax statement or loan closing papers that can be used to establish proof of residence. The vehicle the decal is being requested for must be present for decal to be issued. Landlords are responsible for providing decals to their tenants. Renters will not be able to have decals issued directly to them. No more than 2 decals will be issued for any individual property. After January 31st, the Solid Waste Department may refuse service to anyone who does not have a current decal. Questions should be directed to the Solid Waste Department at 704-878-5430 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
