GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) – Collection of flood-related debris is scheduled to begin this week in Georgetown County.

Georgetown County has contracted with the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) for curbside pickup on public roadways in unincorporated areas of the county affected by flooding. Private streets, those with blue street sighs, will not have curbside pickup.

Flood-related debris should be placed in the public right-of-way, the area that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement.

According to the news release from Georgetown County, all debris will need to be separated into the following six categories for curbside pickup.

  • Electronics
  • Large Appliances
  • Household Hazardous Waste
  • Vegetative Debris
  • Construction Debris
  • Household Garbage

Debris removal will be prioritized according to which areas the debris removal operations can be done safely. Additional debris removal passes will be scheduled for areas where contractors are unable enter safely or residents are unable to safely put debris out for collection.

The debris collection by the SCDOT is for residents not receiving insurance funding for private disposal. Residents that will receive insurance funding to privately dispose of household debris covered by their insurance policy should not place debris in the right-of-way.

Visit www.gtcounty.org for a detailed brochure outlining flood debris removal guidelines for unincorporated areas of Georgetown. Residents in incorporated areas of Georgetown County should contact their Town or City government for debris removal details.

    A new court filing from defendants in a case involving the late former Horry County Police detective Allen Large and a defendant identified as “Jane Doe 3” asks the judge for a summary judgement. Those defendants, including former Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes and the supervisors up the chain of command from Large, believe the case shouldn't go before a jury because Jane Doe Three has no case against them.
