CAROLINA BEACH  -  The Town of Carolina Beach hires a contractor each year to conduct debris removal in the event a hurricane visits our area.
According to Shelia Nicholson - Executive Assistant to the Town Manager - on August 17th, debris removal related to Hurricane Isaias began last week and is expected to be finished soon.  The contractor is working 7:00am to 7:00pm, seven days a week hauling debris from the streets to the temporary debris site. To date, 278 loads or 11,554 cubic yards of vegetative debris have been removed from the Town right of ways.
 Nicholson explained, "Vegetative debris piles located too close to power lines were left in place and will be picked up later using smaller equipment. If you have questions or need more information, please call Town Hall at (910) 458-2999."
Vegetative storm debris may include a combination of bundles and/or bags meeting the following criteria:
• Bundles shall consist of limbs and shrubs no longer than four feet in length.
• Only paper bags shall be utilized.
• Bundles and bags shall be 50 pounds or less each
Storm debris DOES NOT include land clearing, trimmings, prunings or any other activity not associated with Isaiah. Do not place any debris on utilities such as meter boxes, cable boxes, manholes, etc.
New Hanover County will collect vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in the unincorporated areas of the county at no cost to residents beginning the week of August 10, 2020. Construction and demolition debris will NOT be collected.

Debris Collection Tips
When cleaning and clearing debris, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:
• Separate vegetative debris (branches, leaves, etc.) from any household debris (construction and demolition debris like tile, carpet, drywall, etc. will NOT be collected)
• Do not place debris in plastic bags (paper bags are allowed). Debris in plastic bags will NOT be collected.
• Craft paper bags are OK for smaller pieces of debris
• Pile smaller pieces of debris on top of larger pieces
• Debris should be in pieces no larger than 12 feet in length.  Cut larger diameter pieces (>12 inches) into 6 foot lengths
• Place piles at least three feet from mailboxes, utility meters, sign posts, and hydrants
• Place piles no further than five feet from the road
• Do not place debris piles directly under power lines
• Try to consolidate piles with neighbors
