BRUNSWICK COUNTY – Starting Monday, the N.C. Department of Transportation will pick up trees and limbs, and Brunswick County will take up construction and demolition debris, in areas impacted by the Feb. 15 tornado.
Residents should have debris on the right of way by 8 a.m. on March 8. There should be one pile for trees and limbs and a separate pile for construction/demolition debris.
Vegetative debris should not be bagged. It includes leaves, logs, plants and tree branches.
Construction and demolition debris includes building materials, carpet, drywall, furniture, lumber, mattresses and plumbing.
According to the county, debris should be left between the sidewalk/ditch and the road. Otherwise it may not be picked up.
“Residents who do not have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of their home should place debris at the edge of their property near the curb or edge of the road,” according to Brunswick County instructions. “Placing debris near or on fire hydrants, water meters, trees, poles, or other structures makes removal difficult.”
The following roads will receive debris pickup services:
Hwy 904 – from Hwy 17 to 746 Seaside Rd.
Hwy 17 – from Ocean Ridge to Green Bay Rd.
Old Shallotte Road – from Mintz Cemetery Rd to Green Bay Rd
Green Bay Rd – from Old Shallotte Road to Hwy 17
