By now, residents and property owners in unincorporated Dare County should have all storm-related debris placed in front of their properties, in the right-of-way. If you have not yet placed storm debris in the right-of-way, please do so as soon as possible. There will only be one pass made by the debris removal contractor.
In most cases, construction and demolition debris is collected separately from vegetative material. It is very important that storm-related debris is in 4 SEPARATE PILES in front of your property, in the right-of-way. Keep it at least 30 feet away from fire hydrants.
- Vegetative Debris (limbs, leaves, branches, sea grass, etc.) DO NOT BAG!
- Construction and Demolition Materials (building materials, insulation, cardboard, concrete, shingles, etc.)
- Metal (appliances)
- Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics (oil, bleach toilet cleaner, televisions, computers, etc.)
*Large items such as cars, boats, trailers, and campers will be not be accepted and must be disposed of by the owner.
At this time, three crews are completing construction and demolition debris removal in Rodanthe, Waves and Salvo. Once completed, crews will begin working north to south on Hatteras Island removing vegetative debris.
One crew is currently working in Hatteras Village removing vegetative debris. Once Hatteras Village is completed, they will begin working north.
This weekend, an additional crew will be removing damaged trees and limbs over right-of-ways in Buxton.
