Storm debris pick –up continues in Pender County

PENDER COUNTY – The Pender County Office of Emergency Management announced county-wide storm debris pick-up will continue through mid-January.

“This has been a slow process due to the amount of debris caused by Hurricane Matthew,” said Tom Collins, Pender County Emergency Manager.

Collins said Pender County Emergency Management requested additional crews from NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT).

“In Hampstead, a Brunswick County NCDOT crew will be assisting in the clean-up,” said Collins. “A crew from Onslow County will assist in the Maple Hill area.”

Residents living in private subdivisions with private roadways should take their debris to the connecting edge of the state road right-of-way.

“We want to thank the citizens of Pender County for their patience,” said Collins. “Hurricane Matthew left us with three events to clean up – vegetative debris from the high winds and construction and demolition debris from flooding along the Northeast Cape Fear River and the Black River Basin.”

Pender County Emergency Management will continue to post updates on the Facebook page at facebook.com/penderem and on the website http://www.penderem.com. If you need assistance call the EM office at 910- 259-1210.
