Code Enforcement


Code Enforcement Officers enforce the Rockingham County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and the Solid Waste Ordinance (SWO).  

Common Violations Include:

  • Junk motor vehicles
  • Excessive outdoor storage
  • Illegal dumping
  • Illegal burning
  • Illegal businesses

Violations may be reported by any person by phone, email ( ), or by clicking the "file a complaint" link on this page.  Upon inspection by the Code Enforcement Officer, the violator is notified of the violation, instructed on possible solutions and given a time frame in which to have the violation corrected.  Most complaints are resolved through voluntary compliance of the property owner.  Officers can also cite violators through Notices of Violations and/or citations.  Citations can result in legal action with court appearances and fines up to $500 per day.


The N.C Department of Transportation’s Swat-A-Litterbug Program encourages the public to report people who litter in an effort to help make North Carolina roadways cleaner. The program provides every individual an opportunity to be an active participant in reducing litter on North Carolina roadways.
The public can report those who litter to NCDOT’s Litter Management Section by filling out an online form or calling NCDOT Customer Service Office at (877) 368-4968.
Upon receipt of the reported information, NCDOT will mail the registered owner of the vehicle that was reported a formal notification, signed by the N.C. State Highway Patrol, that informs them about the littering offense, the penalties of littering and urges them to help keep North Carolina clean.
