Beaufort County has activated its storm debris removal contract with Southern Disaster Recovery for citizens in unincorporated areas of the county. A once-through pass will begin today. Information on routes and schedules is not available, and trucks will not pass down the same road twice.

Vegetative debris, construction and demolition debris, appliances, white good debris, electronics and household hazardous waste will be removed from state-maintained right of ways throughout unincorporated Beaufort County. Residents should ensure that all debris is stacked within the right of way, but well off the road to not impede traffic or create unsafe driving conditions. Storm debris must be divided into separate piles, with each pile clear of electrical lines, water meters, hydrants and mailboxes. Vegetative debris should not be placed in plastic bags or containers.
