With flooding from Tropical Storm Michael, many residents, property owners and business owners are now faced with undertaking the process of cleaning up and disposing of a wide variety of debris.
Dare County will provide storm debris pick-up in the unincorporated areas of the county. A schedule will be announced as soon as established, but it is important for all debris to be sorted properly, as outlined below. Debris piles are to be set on the side of the road in the right of way. Please do not block driveways, storm drains or utilities.
Debris should be sorted as follows:
Recycle as much as you can to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills. Everything from water bottles to electronics can be recycled at several locations. To find recycling locations and a list of materials accepted, click here.
