From May 9 through May 24, New Hanover County’s Environmental Management Department led the effort to collect 4,238 cubic yards of vegetative debris for residents in the Middle Sound Loop area who were impacted by the EF1 tornado that touched down on May 5, 2016. Debris collection has been completed, and you can view a video of the efforts here.

Located in coastal southeastern North Carolina, the New Hanover County Department of Environmental Management oversees one of the state’s most advanced integrated solid waste disposal systems. The Department operates a recycling drop-off collection system, a Household Hazardous Waste and electronic waste collection system, a RCRA Subtitle D landfill, Construction and Demolition Debris (C&D) diversion, and yard waste passive composting operations.  The resulting system minimizes the use of land resources consumed for burying the waste we generate, and minimizes the potential risks for contaminating the area’s delicate environment.
