Horry County officials have activated a debris management plan, and workers will begin picking up residential tree/yard debris on county maintained roads and in public subdivisions as the program swings into action.
Debris pick-up is not available for residents along private roads and communities, county officials said in a news release.
Residents living in private or gated communities can call private haulers or contractors to remove debris. Yard/tree debris bigger than six inches in diameter and four feet in length must be taken to the Horry County Solid Waste Authority landfill at 1886 S.C. 90, officials said.
Once the river recedes, yard/debris pick-up will begin for properties that are flooded.
Horry County officials will release more information on debris pick-up schedules in the coming days.
For now, Horry County officials say people need to know to:
▪ Place tree branches, logs, leaves and plants on the curbside, 10 feet from the roadways.
▪ Do not block roadways.
▪ Do not bag yard waste and do not block fire hydrants or other utilities.
▪ All residents are urged to make personal safety the first priority. Only set out debris if it is safe to do so.
▪ All household garbage, including discarded food, can be taken to one of the 24 Horry County Solid Waste Authority recycling centers. Click HERE for more information. http://www.solidwasteauthority.org/recyclingcenters.html.
