What do I do with my storm debris - and when?

Damage assessments play a critical role in how local governments respond to and recover from events. While everyone's first response is to start the cleanup, these assessments are important in determining the needs of our community as a whole. For the county to get an accurate idea of the amount of damage that is storm-related, we ask that you hold your debris while keeping categories including vegetative debris, construction and demolition debris, electronics, household trash, appliances and metal, household hazardous waste, etc. North Carolina has several landfill bans in place for many of these items. Having the items separated is key in making sure we uphold the law and the safety of all our emergency responders. If you do decide to haul your storm-related debris to the landfill prior to the assessments, normal tipping fees and long lines are likely.
