MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach’s storm debris contractor has collected roughly 100,000 cubic yards of tree limbs and brushes which will be grounded into mulch at the drop-off site located at 17th and 21st Avenue North Extension, according to the Myrtle Beach Government website.

The debris drop-off site has received 2,375 truckloads of material, the website states.

Public Information Officer Mark Kruea said most likely, the debris will end up as cover material for the Horry County Landfill or an industry may purchase it at a fuel supplement.

Debris collection continues until 12:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 23, and will resume at 7:00 a.m., Monday, November 28, after the Thanksgiving holiday.  The contractor is making the final pass through the city’s neighborhoods.
