The Public Works Department plans, initiates, and maintains comprehensive, integrated, and cost-effective solid waste management services and facilities for Halifax County that meet the objectives of receiving, moving, processing, and disposing of waste in a safe and environmentally sound manner to create a clean and healthy environment.
This department is responsible for providing residential and commercial recycling services and overseeing solid waste collection and disposal activities.
The disposal of solid waste is handled by a transfer station operation where waste is prepared for transportation and disposal at the Southside Regional Public Service Authority landfill in Mecklenburg County.
Recycling services, including pick-up, are provided at specific Collection Center locations. View the Recycling/Collection Center Locations page for more information. For additional questions, contact Ricky Nelson at 434-476-3364.
