In 2007 we began our recycling program with 140 homes in the Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo area. That summer, approximately 30 tons of recyclables were diverted from area landfills. The success of Hatteras Island and Dare County’s first curbside recycling project spurred us to add a number of homes in the Avon area for the 2008 rental season. Success! Approximately 57 tons of recyclables were collected. It is with great pride that we announced that in 2009 we instituted curbside recycling for our entire inventory of Hatteras vacation rentals. As stewards of the island we call home, we realize it is our responsibility to divert as much of the estimated 5,500 tons of waste produced on Hatteras Island between May and September of each year. As guests’ of Midgett Realty and its homeowners, we encourage you to make the effort along with us by taking a few minutes of your precious vacation time to utilize this program to eliminate unnecessary landfill waste. If you have more recycling than will fit in the provided bin, please take a few minutes out of your vacation to drop your recyclable materials off at one of the following locations:
