Horry County crews begin picking up residential debris

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – According to an Horry County press release, a debris management plan has been activated and residential debris will be picked up on county maintained roads and in public subdivisions.

Residents who live in private or gated communities can contact private haulers or contractors to remove the debris, the release states.

For those properties that are currently flooded, debris pick-up on county maintained roads will begin in those areas once the rivers recede.

The release also states that yard and tree debris that are larger than six inches in diameter and four feet in length, must be brought to the Horry County Solid Waste Authority landfill located at 1886 Highway 90.

All residents are urged 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
  • Only set out debris if it is safe to do so
