Mobile HazWagon Hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Mondays at Ogden Park (near the baseball fields)
  • Wednesdays at Wrightsville Beach Municipal Complex
  • Fridays at the Carolina Beach Mike Chappell Park (in the south side of the park across from the tennis courts)
  • First Saturday of each month at Kure Beach Town Hall (starting May 4th)

*Note: No more than 10 gallons of liquid waste and no more than two TVs can be brought to the HazWagon at a time.

When storing chemicals in temporary containers, always mark the container with a description of the contents.  This will help you avoid accidentally mixing potentially reactive chemicals and helps keep our attendants safe.
