Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County says residents in the unincorporated parts of the county should have debris from last week’s winter storm ready for pick-up by Friday.

The New Hanover County Commission has activated its contract with DRC Emergency Services to remove vegetative debris.

Starting tomorrow, crews will clear debris from schools and parks in the county before moving residential areas. Click here for more information and a map that shows service dates.

Collection crews will be removing any hanging limbs or split/leaning limbs that are over the right-of-way. To ensure all storm debris is collected, crews will be working from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. They will make two passes more than a week apart.

Trucks will have a copy of the placard shown above on them.
