Wednesday Morning, the Georgetown County Council agreed to request it’s debris management contractors to clean up storm-related yard debris following the ice storm last week, said county spokeswoman Jackie Broach.

Starting Feb. 24, contractors will remove storm-related debris including vegetative yard waste from public right-of-ways throughout the county including the City of Georgetown, Town of Andrews and Pawleys Island. Private driveways and roads are not included.

Construction debris and garbage will not be collected and homeowners may be cited if such material is left for pickup.
