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 Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD)

Please see the information below for resources related to damage incurred by Hurricane Isaias. Additional resources may be available through VOAD; CLICK HERE to learn more.


Damage Assessment: Self-Reporting

Residents of Brunswick County who received damage as a result of Hurricane Isaias can self-report their damages by CLICKING HERE. Crews will be working throughout the county and towns conduction damage assessments that are used to compile data that is then used by the State of North Carolina to determine if the damages from Hurricane Isaias have reached a level that would qualify Brunswick County for any Federal Assistance. Federal Assistance can be either Public Assistance (PA) relating to infrastructure and government services (as well as non-profit agencies) or Individual Assistance (IA) which is assistance that directly assists the residents of the county.  Federal Programs and funding are typically not made available without these damage assessments. Homeowners will still need to report damages to their individual insurance companies and will still have to apply to any programs that become available.


Debris Assistance

Brunswick County residents in unincorporated areas should have vegetative Isaias debris ready for pick-up no later than Sunday, August 30, 2020. Click Here for more info.
