How Do I Dispose Of...

  1. Automobiles


Veteran Car Donations accepts used working and non-working cars to aid veterans and their families.  It is a fairly simple process with free pickup. Visit the Veterans Car Donations website. 

Moore County does not accept cars at the Moore County Landfill.


We accept lead-acid batteries such as those used for autos, boats, motorcycles, and lawnmowers at the Carthage/Hillcrest Collection Center at 5361 US Highway 15-501. 

We do not currently have a separate recycling program for regular batteries (A, AA, C, or D).  However, these batteries may be disposed of during a planned Household Hazardous Waste Event.

There are many drop-off retailers that collect batteries like: Staples and Lowes

Note: Alkaline batteries are permitted to be thrown away in household trash.  Rechargeable or lithium must be disposed of at a Hazardous Waste Event or at a retailer like Staples or Lowes Hardware.
