Storm debris pickup scheduled for
unincorporated Dare County
By CATHERINE KOZAK
removal for the unincorporated areas of Dare County, which includes all
of Hatteras Island, will begin Monday, July 14.
funding is not available to cover these costs, so the county’s
hurricane debris removal contract will not be activated. All
hurricane debris removal will be provided solely by Dare County Public
The county advises that only one pass
will be made through each neighborhood, so all debris should be placed
in four separate piles on the side of the road by Monday, July
14. There is no set schedule for when crews will be in a
particular area of the county. The process is expected to take
additional time and customers are asked for patience.
addition to Hatteras Island, unincorporated areas include Roanoke
Island (outside the Town of Manteo), Wanchese, Manns Harbor, East Lake,
Stumpy Point, Martins Point, and Colington (including inside the gate).
Debris should be placed in four separate piles on the side of road:
1. Vegetative Debris (limbs, leaves, branches, sea grass, etc.)
2. Construction and Demolition Materials (building materials, concrete, shingles, etc.)
4. Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics (oil, bleach, televisions, computers, etc.)
Large items, such as cars, boats, trailers, and campers will not be accepted and must be disposed of by the owner.
taken to the Dare County Transfer Station in Manns Harbor or the Buxton
Transfer Station will be charged the regular rate of $65/ton. The first
500 pounds for residential customers is free with the remaining weight
prorated at $65/ton.
