City of North Myrtle Beach Storm Debris Collection Update
Posted by Century 21 Thomas Blogger | Thursday, November 3, 2016


City crews have completed yard debris pickup for all state and city public roads in Barefoot Resort and Windy Hill section.

City crews are using four trucks to continue working the west side of Hwy 17 and are currently in the Belle Park area. The city trucks are scheduled to begin moving out of Belle Park late Friday and will continue north, working the west side of Hwy 17. The city crews will be directed to the Palmetto Shores/Grove Section of Cherry Grove once they have completed the Sunset Harbor section.

The federally approved contractor has four trucks working in the city. For yard debris, there are two trucks working on the east side of Hwy 17 in Crescent Beach section and one truck in the Ocean Drive section between 20th Ave North and Sea Mountain Highway on east side of Hwy 17. The fourth truck is handling construction and demolition (C&D) debris in the area between 20th Ave North and Sea Mountain Highway on the east side of Highway 17. The contractor may add a fifth truck in the next few days to assist with C&D.

The City has contacted the contractor about adding more trucks to begin collection of debris from private roads. The contractor has told the City that it will take a couple of days to have any new trucks brought in. The availability of trucks is getting quite thin as other areas affected by the hurricane and flooding also vie for trucks for their debris pickup needs.

FEMA has approved collection of debris from private roadways, provided their HOAs sign a FEMA Right of Entry/Hold Harmless form, which must then be reviewed and approved by FEMA. Additionally, the contractor cannot mix debris that is picked up from private roads with debris that is picked up from public roads. Each must be collected separately, delivered to the approved landfill site separately and logged separately.
