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 trash cans, 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.
