NCDOT to Begin Picking Up Vegetative Storm Debris in Carteret County Monday

RALEIGH - The N.C. Department of Transportation is working to efficiently remove vegetative debris left behind on Little Kinston Road after a tornado hit last month.

Damage from the May 30 storm was most prominent in the area of Pelletier.

Property owners are requested to place vegetative debris along the right of way on Little Kinston Road. NCDOT will conduct debris pick-up operations until June 15.

Keep these items in mind while collecting debris for removal:

NCDOT will only collect vegetation debris such as trees and limbs;

Property owners are asked to cut storm-related debris into five- or six-foot pieces, if possible, and place it along the roadway, but out of travel lanes;

Check your homeowners insurance as often debris cleanup is covered by insurance and arrangements for its collection will be handled by the insurance company.
