Carteret County to provide debris pickup after January’s winter storm

CARTERET COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) – Carteret County officials are coordinating debris pickups in the Atlantic community following the January winter storm that brought high winds to the area.

Residents are asked to place storm-related debris on the side of the road in a way that does not block the road.

The county says the debris should be accessible for pickup, as public works crews can only collect debris reachable from the road with their equipment. Crews are not allowed to enter private property.

The pickup will start on Wednesday, Feb. 7, and will continue until all debris is cleared.
