[ARCHIVED] Separating Debris and Trash after Hurricane Ian

SCDOT Debris Flyer

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - As families continue to clean up from Hurricane Ian, there are some things to keep in mind that will help City crews remove debris more quickly from homes in the City of North Myrtle Beach moving forward.


To facilitate curbside service following the recent storm event, adhere to the following guidelines: 

  • All contractors are required to remove trees/limbs they cut. City ordinance requires contractors, tree services, and landscape companies to remove debris generated from their work. If the contractor fails to do so, the property owner will be responsible for costs incurred by the City for removal and disposal.  
  • Property owners who cut and remove their own tree debris must cut to less than 4 feet in length and less than 12 inches in diameter. City ordinance requires tree debris to be cut to these dimensions. Larger debris can damage collection equipment.  
  • Keep all tree limbs and branches in a separate pile — away from non-vegetative debris (wood planks, roofing). 
  • No Zone Pickup. Any Debris placed from the sidewalk toward your property will not be picked up. Do not block sidewalks. 

 

Here are the six piles you’ll need. You don’t want to touch things twice:

 

1.     Electronics: These have components that may be dangerous. Some parts may be able to be recycled. Electronics include things like – computers, radios, stereos, televisions, other devices with a cord.

 

2.     Appliances: Some have gases or other components that need special handling. Appliances include things like – air conditioners, dishwashers, freezers, refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, water heaters, etc.

 

3.     Hazardous material: Waste with properties that make it potentially harmful to human health or the environment. Hazardous materials include things like – cleaning supplies, batteries, lawn chemicals, oils, oil-based paints and stains, pesticides, etc.

 

4.     Vegetative material: Large piles of tree limbs, branches, grass, plants, and leaves. Much of this can be burned or ground up and given back to the community as mulch. These measures reduce the amount of waste going into a landfill by 75 – 95 percent.

 

5.     Construction material: Damaged components of buildings and structures—wood, glass, metal, roofing material, tile, carpeting, concrete, equipment, mattresses, furniture, plumbing, etc.

 

6.     Household garbage: For regular garbage, spoiled foodstuffs, etc., Follow your normal garbage/recycling removal schedule.
