Recycling & Hazardous Waste Disposal Committee

The Recycling & Hazardous Waste Disposal Committee works with the Public Services Department to inform and motivate residents on the concepts and practices of recycling. The Committee also helps promote programs to collect hazardous waste materials, such as old paints, garden chemicals and batteries that should not be put into landfills.

The Committee's mission is to “Inform and Motivate”. Information is provided through printed media using the Village Newsletter, organization newsletters, the Village web site, and brochures. Committee members are available to make presentations to groups such as homeowners, social groups, garden clubs, civic groups and schools. The Committee motivates residents to recycle and dispose of hazardous waste appropriately by presenting information about the environmental impact and preservation of natural resources aspect of recycling.

The Committee has established a goal for increasing recycling in Pinehurst by 5% over the next year. At the current level of participation, this means an increase of 21 pounds per year of recycled material per household, or two full garbage bags.

There are Five Good Reasons to Recycle: 

  1. Recycling conserves our valuable natural resources.
  2. Recycling saves energy.
  3. Recycling saves clean air and clean water.
  4. Recycling saves landfill space.
  5. Recycling can save money and create jobs.

Additional information can be found under on the Recycling Information page under Community Resources and also at Earth911's website and in the list of Recycling Facts. An excellent web resource on the processes of recycling for kids and adults alike may be found at www.explorethecycle.com.

The Village's Public Services Department provides curbside recycling once every week and accepts co-mingled recyclables. The Village also operates a Recycling Center at 600 McCaskill Road, near the Public Services office. The Recycling Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. All residents are encouraged to take advantage of these recycling services. Questions about the recycling program can be directed to the Public Services Department at (910) 295-5021.
