Where do I take used furniture, appliances and used mattress?
These items may be brought to the Dare County Landfill located at 1603 Cub Road in Manns Harbor for disposal.
What does Mosquito Control do and why?Mosquito control attempts to safely and economically control mosquitoes to a safe and tolerable level, therefore reducing the risk of mosquito borne disease and the nuisance level to acceptable/safe conditions. The primary focus is on reducing the viral risk and the operational emphasis is on habitat reduction/elimination and larval control. The ultra low volume (ULV) spraying is used only as needed for the control of adult mosquitoes.
Can I as a homeowner make a difference in the mosquito population in my area?YES! There are certain mosquito species that tend to breed in artificial containers, tires and tree holes, and stay close to humans for a ready blood meal available. As a result, it does not need to leave the area to complete the process of repopulating. Even small quantities of water can provide an ample breeding opportunity for these species.
The Public Works Departments' goal is to meet the needs of the citizens of Dare County in regards to solid waste disposal. This is achieved through the selling and delivery of trashcans, resolving sanitation / recycling problems and enforcing waste disposal guidelines.
We also provide additional services such as large item pick-up, coordinating support efforts during adverse weather conditions and Mosquito Control. This department develops sanitation and recycling guidelines, procedures, and schedules and serves to coordinate operations between other Public Works departments.
