NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Many city's, towns and counties have plans in place, or are working to put plans in place to assist residents in clearing the fallen tree limbs resulting from the winter storm.

If you live in North Myrtle Beach, the city's sanitation department will pick up fallen tree limbs placed on curbside.

The City of North Myrtle Beach Sanitation Division will pick up fallen tree limbs that have been cut up to measure 4 feet or less, according to a release from the city.

North Myrtle Beach property owners may place their cut tree limbs at curbside. The city will not pick up tree trunks, cut or otherwise.

The city will also not pick up work done by professional tree services; they must haul away their own work.

Myrtle Beach has similar guidelines, and will be picking up debris during the regular route. Friday, the city will reassess the situation to decide if additional pick-ups are necessary.

At anytime, you can drop off yard debris to the recycling centers throughout Horry County.

"We will be picking up debris in the county right-of-ways on county maintained roads just like SCDOT will do on state roads," explained Lisa Bourcier, a spokesperson for Horry County.

However, the county does not provide curbside services as the unincorporated millage pays for all the recycling centers throughout Horry County.

The City of Florence has a set yard waste collection routine. Days of pickup vary depending on what area of the city residents are located in.
