Deadline to have vegetative storm debris out is this Sunday, September 13, 2020
Hurricane Isaias came through Bald Head Island over five weeks ago. Our debris removal contractor is about to complete the first pass of the island and ALL vegetative storm debris should be on the side of the road for pick-up. The deadline to have vegetation out will be this coming Sunday, September 13, 2020.
Since the storm came through over a month ago, all vegetation should be brown in color (dead), there should be no green vegetation out for pick-up. Be advised, FEMA will not reimburse the Village for debris that is green because it is not related to the storm event. If you have a landscaper, please let them know that they cannot add new green vegetation to the storm debris piles.
All landscape debris (debris that is not associated with Hurricane Isaias and/or the tornado) should be taken to the Timber Creek mulch site. This site will be re-opened tomorrow (Friday, September 11, 2020). The mulch site had been closed early in the debris removal process since folks were dropping debris off there (if storm debris is dropped there it cannot be counted for FEMA reimbursement). The site has been cleaned up and now that the Village is coming to the end of the debris removal process with completion of the initial pass, the Village can accept landscape debris at this location (brown pin on THIS MAP) beginning tomorrow.
