Storm Debris Update - 9/12/19

Dare County Public Works staff will begin debris removal on Monday, September 16 inside the gate at Colington Harbor. Homeowners in these areas are asked to place all debris in right-of-way by 6 a.m. Monday morning as the County only has resources available to make one pass through each neighborhood.

A schedule for other areas of unincorporated Dare County will be released as soon as details are finalized.

QUICK LINKS

The Public Works Departments' goal is to meet the needs of the citizens of Dare County in regards to solid waste disposal. This is achieved through the selling and delivery of trash cans, resolving sanitation/recycling problems and enforcing waste disposal guidelines.


 

We also provide additional services such as large item pick-up, coordinating support efforts during adverse weather conditions and Mosquito Control. This department develops sanitation and recycling guidelines, procedures, and schedules and serves to coordinate operations between other Public Works departments.
