A map has been created for residents to view the progress of debris pick-ups in the unincorporated county.
Debris collection in unincorporated areas of New Hanover County will begin Monday, September 24, beginning with county parks and schools, then moving to unincorporated areas. Crews will make no less than two passes over the county to ensure debris is cleared as timely as possible.
When cleaning and clearing debris, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:
Because of declining use, the debris drop off sites at Ogden Park and Veteran’s Park closed on Saturday, October 20, and the site’s resources have been redirected to other debris collection efforts. County residents are encouraged to place their storm-related debris at the curb for collection. Demolition and vegetative debris piles must be kept separate to be collected. At this time, the county landfill is not accepting vegetative debris from residents or commercial haulers, however residents can bring demolition waste to the landfill.
Gated communities must provide permission to enter or a gate code to Environmental Management by emailing JSuleyman@nhcgov.com. Private roads will be serviced as long as a large truck can enter and have space to turn around to exit. Those who live on small private roads are asked to consolidate debris piles with neighbors at the front of the road.
