Beaufort County: Hurricane Matthew debris removal begins on Monday

WASHINGTON, N.C. ( WNCT) – Beaufort County has announced it will begin to pick up and remove all Vegetative and C&D (Construction and Demolition) debris on Monday. The debris will be picked up off of any state and municipal road within the area.

Residents are asked to start the process of moving debris out to the roadway in front of their homes. Residents should also make sure that the debris is stacked within the right of way but well of the road so it doesn’t interfere with traffic or create unsafe driving conditions.

Approved C&D debris consists of flood-damaged furniture, drywall, curtains, mattresses, shingles, studs, insulation, and other structural damages as a result of Hurricane Matthew.

It is a crime to dump trash or debris that is not related to the storm. Anyone who does this will be investigated and possibly charged.

All residents with questions or complaints are asked to call Beaufort County Emergency Management at 946-2046.
