Recycling on Hatteras Island

While the first couple of initiatives may be well known, we wanted to reemphasize the existence of our recycling program here on the Island.

Our Island’s initiative to sustain the health and wellbeing of our coastal environment includes reducing the use and distribution of plastic bags and straws, organized community beach clean-ups, volunteer-led awareness and engagement projects, and a self-service recycling program.

In some areas, recycling bins are placed on the driveways along with the trash cans. While Island homes do not have recycling bins or recycling programs like this, we do have a self-serviced recycling spot located at the Buxton Transfer Station. For more information and to learn how to use the recycling site, see the links & images below.
