Tornado Debris | Beaufort County Now | Beaufort County Government wants to announce that pick up and removal of all vegetative and C&D (construction and demolition) debris has not begun within Beaufort County.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
For Immediate Release:

    Beaufort County Government wants to announce that pick up and removal of all vegetative and C&D (construction and demolition) debris has not begun within Beaufort County.

    The debris pickup will not begin until the county has some idea concerning the availability of State or Federal grants. C&D debris and vegetative debris may be separated and stored on your property until the county announces any plans for the pickup of these materials.

    Please do not place debris on the NC DOT right-of-way along state maintained roads. Homeowners may also take vegetative debris to the Beaufort County landfill, located on Hawkins Beach Road. Hours of operation are 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Saturday this week. All tipping fees at the landfill for vegetative debris generated by the severe storms and tornados of April 25, 2014 have been waived by directions of the Beaufort County Board of Commissioners.

    If Beaufort County begins picking up C&D debris FEMA guidelines will prohibit Beaufort County from picking up or removing debris that were deposited by a contractor paid by a private resident. FEMA states that homeowner’s insurance policies will cover the removal of a demolished home. FEMA rule also state that if a resident hires a contractor to demo their residential or commercial structure and load it into a container for shipment, that contractor then becomes liable for removal of the debris to an approved and licensed landfill.

    Beaufort County has received, and is investigating complaints of debris dumping that is not a result of the April 25, 2014 event. All cases of dumping of trash or debris that is not related to the storm event are a crime and will be investigated. We urge all residents with questions or complaints to call Beaufort County Emergency Management at 946-2046.
