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

Controlled Burns

At times, large controlled hazard reduction burns are conducted by various groups in Brunswick County. These burns are allowed, permitted and conducted under the rules from NC Forestry; Brunswick County does not permit these burns, and they are outside the areas that the County can regulate. When Brunswick County receives information about the location and timing of such burns, it is shared with citizens so they can be aware of these burns taking place (notices are posted below; to sign up for email notifications, click here). To view Brunswick County’s Open Burning Ordinance, click here.

If you see fire and feel your or someone/something else are in danger, please call 911.

If you have questions about a controlled burn, please contact NC Forestry. If you have concerns about air quality, these can be addressed by the NC Division of Environmental Quality (Air Quality).

At one time low-intensity wildfires were a common occurrence across North Carolina and helped keep our forests healthy.  Today controlled burns, also known as prescribed fires, are used to mimic those low-intensity fires. Controlled burns are conducted under strict weather parameters to help to remove unwanted fuels that can lead to larger wildfires, to open up the understory for wildlife to forage, and add nutrients to the soil, helping the forest to grow healthier, amongst a host of other benefits. To learn more about controlled burns click here or visit the N.C. Prescribed Fire Council’s website.
