Due to the small amount of debris as a result of Hurricane Dorian, county-wide debris collection will not take place. Residents can bring debris to the landfill (hours of operation can be found here) as they typically do with regular yard and home maintenance. There is no burn ban in place, but residents in the unincorporated area who plan to burn debris must apply for a free permit to burn at NCForestService.gov.
