WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HURRICANE DEBRIS PICKUP
Storm Debris Collection

Currituck County continues to pick up storm debris caused by Hurricane Dorian. This collection started on Monday, September 23, 2019 and should be completed very soon.

Important points to remember:

  • The collection will only take place from the right of way on state-maintained roads. Collection trucks will not pick up storm debris on private roads. Residents who are unsure if they live on a state-maintained road may check online. Enter address in the search box. If you are using a mobile device the search bar will not show, however the streets are marked. Just pan and zoom to find your street.
  • Residents on private roads should take storm debris to one of the county’s convenience centers.
  • Only “woody” debris (trees and branches) will be collected. No bags or other items will be picked up.
  • Tree and branch sections should not be more than 6 feet in length.
  • As you prepare to clean up from Dorian, please be sure to observe health and safety guidelines! The Centers for Disease Control and  Prevention (CDC) has all the information you need to clean up safely after a disaster.

At this time, there is only one collection pass planned for the county. Everyone who wants to participate should now have their debris placed along their state-maintained road.
