Storm debris removal for Dare County announced

Posted: Updated:
MANTEO, N.C. - Storm debris removal in Dare County is now scheduled for pick up starting Monday, July 14, 2014. 

This is for the unincorporated areas that includes all of Hatteras Island, Roanoke Island (outside the Town of Manteo), Wanchese, Manns Harbor, East Lake, Stumpy Point, Martins Point, and Colington (including inside the gate). 

FEMA funding is not available to cover these costs, so Dare County Public Works staff will be working alone to handle the removal.   

For now, there is no set schedule but county officials need your help to make pick up easy. They are asking that all debris be placed in sorted piles on the side of the road according to the following by Monday, July 14:

1. Vegetative Debris (limbs, leaves, branches, sea grass, etc.)
2. Construction and Demolition Materials (building materials, concrete, shingles, etc.)
3. Metal
4. Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics (oil, bleach, televisions, computers, etc.)

Large items such as cars, boats, trailers, and campers will not be accepted and must be disposed of by the owner.

Debris taken to the Dare County Transfer Station in Manns Harbor or the Buxton Transfer Station will be charged the regular rate of $65/ton. (The first 500 pounds for residential customers is free with the remaining weight prorated at $65/ton.)

For more information, call Dare County Public Works at 252-475-5880 or 252-475-5881.
