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

Litter Management

The NC Department of Transportation has several programs where individuals, businesses, and organizations can get involved with the removal of litter from the roadsides. These programs include:


Requirements include litter cleanups at least four times each year on a two mile stretch of roadway for at least four years. The NC Department of Transportation installs two Adopt-A-Highway signs, with a recognition panel, on the stretch of road. They will also provide training and supplies needed for the cleanups. Crews will also collect the bags that are supplied once reported. For more information, please contact the NC Department of Transportation’s Litter Management Program at (910) 259-4919. You can also visit their website at Applying to Adopt-A-Highway .

Litter Sweep

The last two weeks of April and September are dedicated to litter cleanups in North Carolina. The NC Department of Transportation provides supplies to individuals and/or organizations willing to partake in the cleanup. Crews will also collect the bags that are supplied once reported. For more information, please contact the NC Department of Transportation’s Litter Management Program at (910) 259-4919. You can also visit their website at Litter Sweep .


Local individuals, businesses, and organizations can sponsor litter removal from the roadsides. The North Carolina Department of Transportation will post a sign with an acknowledgement panel to identify the sponsor. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor, should contact one of these private companies for more information or by visiting Sponsor-A-Highway.
