Hyde County’s debris removal contractor will complete the first pass of Hurricane Dorian-related debris removal on Ocracoke on Friday (Nov. 1).  The second pass will begin on Saturday, Nov. 16.

Ocracoke residents may take only household trash to the convenience site and are encouraged to continue to place disaster debris on the right-of-way according to the attached diagram.

Mainland debris removal operations will begin on Saturday, Nov. 2, and will conduct one pass of disaster debris removal consistent with FEMA guidance.

Mainland Citizens may transport vegetative storm debris to the designated mainland convenience sites, or they can place it on the shoulder of the NCDOT right-of-way as outlined in the diagram provided. The Swan Quarter and Engelhard convenience sites will accept vegetative storm debris.

The debris contractor will not collect storm debris on private property.
