Hyde County’s debris removal contractor has completed an initial assessment to determine debris volumes and equipment needs. Ocracoke debris removal operations will begin on Saturday, Sept. 14, and will conduct three passes of disaster debris removal consistent with FEMA guidance.

Mainland citizens may transport vegetative storm debris to the designated mainland convenience sites or you can place it on the shoulder of the NCDOT right-of-way. The Swan Quarter and Engelhard convenience sites will accept your vegetative storm debris. Ocracoke residents will only be allowed to take household trash to the convenience site. The debris contractor will not collect storm debris on private property.
