Yard Waste Debris Collection 


Thank you Emerald Isle property owners for your assistance related to our Hurricane Florence clean-up efforts. 

Since October 2018, Public Works has kept two trucks collecting debris across the island.  Every day of the workweek, an average of 75-100 stops per day are being made.  The Town of Emerald Isle Public Works department has removed in excess of $1.4 million worth of vegetative debris! 

Due to the sheer volume of material, the debris collection process has taken longer than expected.  We truly appreciate your patience and understanding.  We could not have successfully recovered from this devastating storm without your support.

Along with your help, our team will continue to keep Emerald Isle beautiful.

Nice Matters!

Artie Dunn,
Public Works Director
