The County’s contracted debris removal crews have begun debris pickup and removal. The Fifteen (15) teams will pick up and remove disaster debris along the public right-of-way in the unincorporated areas of the County. Also, to further assist Onslow County citizens with the recovery process in the wake of Hurricane Florence, the debris removal crews will also remove disaster debris on private roads in the unincorporated areas; if the public has unrestricted access (no locks, gates, or guards) and public frequently use the private road. Citizens must separate disaster debris and place it curbside; without blocking the roadway (see posted image). Curbside is the area of the property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. The exact routes are still being mapped out by the contractor. However, crews will make multiple disaster debris pickups in the unincorporated areas, so if citizens miss a pickup date, they will have additional opportunities to have their disaster debris removed. Announcements will be made in advance before debris removal services end. Please remember regular household trash and bagged debris of any kind will not be picked up with disaster debris.

The Board also recognized the Onslow County Health Department as re-accredited with honors, a special designation for departments that excel in the number of benchmarks met throughout the four-year process.

The Re-accreditation with Honors designation was implemented for the first time in the Fall of 2017 to recognize agencies that especially excelled in their accreditation assessment by only missing one or fewer activities within each of five standards set by the North Carolina Local Health Department Accreditation (NCLHDA) program
