Abandoned Mobile Home Cleanup Project

Program Description

Iredell County’s Abandoned Manufactured-Housing Cleanup Project was started to aid county residents with the destruction and removal of abandoned manufactured homes on private property. The program is funded by grants from NCDENR. Funds may be granted for voluntary deconstruction or in the event of violation of minimum housing standards after required notification.

The Basics

The county will reimburse up to $1,000 to offset the cost of destruction and removal of abandoned manufactured-homes. Utilities must be disconnected and the septic tank must be located and marked prior to destruction of the home. All appliances, tires, thermostats and mercury switches must be removed and brought to the Twin Oaks Solid Waste Facility for recycling. Additionally, it is required that a minimum of at least the frame and axles be recycled. Documentation of recycling and all expenses will be required for reimbursements. The property owner will be responsible for paying any additional expenses beyond the amount of reimbursement. This process usually takes between a few weeks and two months. Please note that this program is on a first come, first served basis providing all criteria is met.


Everyone is eligible, aside from the following exceptions. Only one home per lot is permitted. Homes in mobile home parks are not eligible for this program unless home is owned by an individual renting the space from park. Additionally, the home cannot be burned.
