Special Pickup Thursday

The Town of Beech Mountain provides special curbside pickups of yard waste (brush and bagged leaves), as well as other materials prohibited in the landfill,  white goods (old refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, etc.), and furniture generated by the property owner. This service is provided to property owners only and is not intended for someone you may hire to clean up your yard or for lot cleaning.  If you have a contractor replace your roof, repair your deck or do other work which generates waste, part of your contract MUST be for the contractor to remove the old materials.
