The South Carolina Department of Transportation will start the final pickup of vegetative debris – trees, tree limbs, tree stumps – generated by Hurricane Matthew Dec. 5 in Clarendon County.
Other counties for which DOT will pick-up vegetative debris include Berkeley, Colleton, Darlington, Dillon, Dorchester, Florence, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry, Jasper, Lee, Marion, Marlboro, Orangeburg, Sumter and Williamsburg.
Residents should have vegetative storm-related debris placed beside the road prior to Dec. 5. Vegetative debris not brought to the roadside by this date will have to be disposed of by the property owner. Bagged debris or normal yard waste will not be included in this pickup.
Vegetative debris includes limbs, trees and stumps that were damaged by Hurricane Matthew.
This does not include flood-related debris such as stoves, refrigerators, and other large appliances, electronic waste, construction and demolition debris.
There will be additional pickups for flood-related debris in the counties where flooding occurred. However, this operation will be limited to only the areas that suffered from flooding. The counties where SCDOT has received reports of flood-related debris are Colleton, Georgetown, Horry and Marion.
