What is Construction Debris? Also called C&D, it is generally the material that is generated from construction activity. Lumber, bricks, shingles, cabinets, doors, etc.
What is a Construction & Debris Landfill? All landfills must be permitted by the NC Department of Environmental Quality and receive routine inspections and follow a strict operating plan.
Construction & Demolition Debris and Bulky Waste
Mecklenburg County will accept up to 10 cubic yard sized loads of C&D at any of its Full Service Sites. As a guide, a full pick up truck is about 3 cubic yards.
* Full-service drop-off centers accept only small loads (pickup truck size) of Drywall and concrete.
Loads that are 10 cubic yards or larger must be taken directly to the Foxhole Landfill.
**If shingles are brought in on a trailer less than 12 feet, they can make up no more than 50% of the materials being disposed of. If the shingles are more than 50% of the load, they must be taken to the Foxhole Landfill Mondays-Fridays only.
The Foxhole Landfill is open Monday thru Fridays : 7 am to 4 pm, and
closed Saturdays and Sundays. The landfill is located at 17131 Lancaster Highway.
