Donations can be made online at, or can be mailed to the Outer Banks Community Foundation at 13 Skyline Road, Southern Shores, NC 27949. Please write “Disaster Relief” in the memo line of your check, or select the “Disaster Relief Fund” if donating online.

  • Storm Debris Pick-Up for Unincorporated Dare County

    July 7, 2014    5:00 p.m. 

    Debris removal for the unincorporated areas of Dare County will begin Monday, July 14, 2014.  FEMA funding is not available to cover these costs, so the County’s hurricane debris removal contract will not be activated.  All hurricane debris removal will be provided solely by Dare County Public Works staff.

    Please be aware that only one pass will be made through each neighborhood so all debris should be placed in four separate piles on the side of the road by Monday, July 14.  There is no set schedule for when crews will be in a particular area of the County. The process is expected to take additional time and customers are asked for patience.

    Storm debris pick-up for the unincorporated areas includes all of Hatteras Island, Roanoke Island (outside the Town of Manteo), Wanchese, Manns Harbor, East Lake, Stumpy Point, Martins Point, and Colington (including inside the gate).

    Debris should be placed in 4 separate piles on the side of road by Monday, July 14:

    1. Vegetative Debris (limbs, leaves, branches, sea grass, etc.)
    2. Construction and Demolition Materials (building materials, concrete, shingles, etc.)
    3. Metal
    4. Household Hazardous Waste and Electronics (oil, bleach, televisions, computers, etc.)

    Large items such as cars, boats, trailers, and campers will not be accepted and must be disposed of by the owner.

    Debris taken to the Dare County Transfer Station in Manns Harbor or the Buxton Transfer Station will be charged the regular rate of $65/ton. (The first 500 pounds for residential customers is free with the remaining weight prorated at $65/ton.)

    For more information, call Dare County Public Works at 252-475-5880 or 252-475-5881.
