WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — With the winter storm behind us, the clean-up continues around southeastern North Carolina. That has a lot of people wondering what to do with storm debris, like all those fallen tree limbs.
New Hanover County has activated a debris removal plan for the unincorporated county. The county says its contract crew should start removing debris as early as next week. Information about debris pickup and scheduling will be on the county’s website once the schedule is set.
The City of Wilmington has extra crews out clearing debris off the side of roads. The city estimates there is 30,000-50,000 cubic yards of debris to be picked up around the Port City. Pick up of regular residential yard waste will be delayed until next week so that crews can concentrate on getting debris off roads and to give customers time to clean up their yards this weekend.
The city says crews will concentrate storm debris pickup on Friday in the following areas:
Brunswick County has no plans for debris pick-up for unincorporated areas. You can drop off debris at the Brunswick County Landfill. Tipping fees for vegetative debris, which is used to make mulch, are $22.50 per ton.
Leland will open the debris drop-off site at 187 Old Lanvale Rd from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday for residents. The town is not planning to have curbside pickup of residential storm debris.
