See the latest information about vegetative debris collection on private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county due to Isaias >> https://www.brunswickcountync.gov/isaiasdebris

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

We have received several calls requesting whether are not private third-party design professionals could perform inspections to keep projects going. Contractors may use third-party design professionals to perform footing, foundation and slab inspections only. Here’s the memorandum from the Department of Insurance drafted by Cliff Isaac Deputy Commissioner dated 3/23/2020, giving clarifications and options on how to deal with Inspections and our current situation that our nation is dealing with.

March 2020

After consulting with the Department of Insurance we have decided to no longer require an inspection for garage slab unless it meets one of the two following conditions:

  1. 2’ or more of fill was required for prepping of slab, in which a compaction report would be required.
  2. The slab is considered Structural and has a thickened area or lug for bearing.
