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

Brunswick County Evacuation Lifted, Many Roads Still Dangerous, Assistance for Food Service Establishments Re-Opening


The mandatory evacuation for unincorporated areas of Brunswick County has been lifted, though many roads – including main highways into Brunswick County – remain closed.

Road conditions are being updated at Citizens should be aware that many roads remain flooded or blocked by trees or power lines; some roads have been damaged or compromised by flooding. Citizens should never attempt to drive through flooded water. Those in Brunswick County who are not safe at their location can call 911 for assistance.

Brunswick County Health Services wants to assist food service establishments that are re-opening in Brunswick County. Food service establishments that only sell pre-packaged foods can go ahead and re-open. Facilities that prepare food should call 910-253-2150.

As responders work to assess damage and clear roads, and utility providers work to restore power in Brunswick County, citizens should continue to take measures to stay safe:

  • Do not attempt to drive through standing water.
  • Stay away from flood water, as it could contain gasoline, bacteria, debris, or other contaminants.
  • Check refrigerated food for spoilage. If in doubt, throw it out.
  • Watch for wild animals, including poisonous snakes. Use sticks to poke debris.
  • Never us a generator or grill inside a home or garage. Make sure these items are used in a well-ventilated area, away from buildings.
