Hurricane Dorian debris removal update for Dare

Published 5:50 am Friday, October 4, 2019

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, 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 four 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.
