Hermine-related vegetative debris pick-up schedules

By on September 7, 2016

Local governments are starting to announce their schedules for Tropical Storm Hermine-related debris pick-up. We will update this story as more plans are posted.

Dare County (outside town limits) UPDATED 9/8
NC DOT workers have already begun removal of storm debris from state maintained roads on Roanoke Island. State and county crews will begin pick up on Hatteras Island beginning Monday, September 12.

Crews will pass through areas only once so residents and businesses are asked to move debris to the side of the road now, separated properly, to ensure service.


To expedite the process, Dare County Public Works requests that residents and businesses properly separate debris into piles as follows:
-Yard debris
-Building debris, flooded building contents
-Metal and flooded appliances

Debris should be placed at curbside, away from fire hydrants, trees, power lines, mailboxes and valves or other items that could be damaged or restrict collection.

For those able to transport debris and wanting to dispose of it more quickly, the County’s Transfer Stations or the Recycling Center in Manteo are available and residential tipping fees for vegetative debris will be waived.

Transfer Station in Buxton, 252.995.6877
All materials, sorted
Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Nags Head Updated 9/9
Put your storm related debris, which should be primarily vegetative, out by the side of the road as soon as possible. Should you have any other type of storm debris, such as a broken deck chair, you can also place that by the side of the road, but it must be separate from the vegetative debris.

Please do not bag your leaves, trees, or limbs. If you have questions, please all Nags Head Public Works at 252.441.1122.

Southern Shores
Pick-up of property owners’ vegetative yard waste only will start on Monday, Sept. 12.

Tree and branch removal contractors and professional landscapers must remove any debris including trees, stumps, limbs, branches, etc. that they cut, move, or handle in any way on behalf of a property owner.

Southern Shores or its contractor will not pick up this yard-waste.

Pick-up will commence and proceed concurrent with the existing schedule for zones of the Town’s existing limb and branch removal service.

Pick-up will begin the week of Sept. 12 in Zone 1 (orange).

A map of the zones and schedule may be found at on the Town’s website: http://southernshores-nc.gov/residents/limbbranch-chipping-program/.

Please make every effort to have yard waste generated by this storm at edge of street by pick-up time.

Unbagged leaves and small twigs will be picked up. Please refrain from placing leaves in plastic bags. The Town’s semi-annual large item bulk pick-up is scheduled for Friday October 21.

Currituck County
At this time, Currituck County has been informed that NCDOT will not be picking up vegetative debris caused by TS Hermine due to the absence of FEMA funding.

The Currituck Board of Commissioners has appealed directly to Gov. McCrory’s office for assistance and is awaiting a reply.

Citizens are encouraged to take downed branches, etc. to the Transfer Station, located next to Currituck Regional Airport, or to their local Recycling Center.

All Recycling Centers are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. The Transfer Station is open from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday.
