See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >>

Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.

Click here for full details and instructions on this collection.

Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.

A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.

This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.

This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Residents who need assistance to move debris or other needs following Hurricane Isaias can contact the Brunswick County VOAD for guidance and direction to organizations or services that may be able to help: 910-253-2589

Commissioner Mike Forte


Commissioner Mike Forte

After being a successful small business owner for over 30 years in New Jersey, my family and I relocated to Brunswick County in 2005 to retire. Retirement proved to be a little boring after a short while, so I became involved as a volunteer in different local charities. I was a founder and president of the Cape Fear Italian Festival in Leland where every dollar made was donated to provide scholarship funding for needy students at Brunswick Community College. This gained me a seat as a board member for the Foundation of Brunswick Community College, where I served for nearly 10 years and held the position of both vice president and president. The college is something very near and dear to me as I believe every child should have an opportunity for a good education to prepare them for life. I am still very committed to that cause.

In 2011 I ran for and won a seat on the Boiling Spring Lakes City Council where I served for four years. Upon completion of my term as city commissioner, I opted to run for the position of county commissioner for District 4 and was again successful and now serve in that capacity. I hold this position with the highest regard and respect for the citizens of Brunswick County and I always approach every vote as what is best for the majority of all citizens. I endeavor to be fiscally responsible with every taxpayer dollar.

I am proud to serve as your representative in Brunswick County.
