Hurricane Florence debris collection in the unincorporated areas of New Hanover County was completed at the end of January. Over four months, more than 1.3 million cubic yards of debris was picked up – enough to fill 13,000 tractor trailers.
The county landfill accepts vegetative debris (branches, leaves, etc.) and demolition debris from residents during regular operating hours. Effective November 12, 2018 the landfill disposal fees are $30 per ton for vegetative debris and $48 per ton for demolition debris.
