Storm Related Yard Waste Removal in Southern Shores- The Town of Southern Shores will commence on Monday September 12th with pick-up of property owners’ vegetative yard waste generated by Tropical Storm Hermine. This pick-up will be for vegetative yard waste only. Please note that tree and branch removal contractors and professional landscapers must remove any debris (including trees, stumps, limbs, branches, etc.) that they cut, move, or handle in any way on behalf of a property owner. The Town or its contractor will not pick up this yard-waste. Pick-up will commence and proceed concurrent with the existing schedule for sectors of the Town’s existing limb and branch removal service. Pick-up will begin the week of Monday September 12th in Sector 1 (orange). A map of the sectors and schedule may be found at the following link on the Town’s website: http://southernshores-nc.gov/residents/limbbranch-chipping-program/. Please make every effort to have yard waste generated by this storm at edge of street by pick-up time. Un-bagged leaves and small twigs will be picked up. Please refrain from placing leaves in plastic bags. The Town’s semi-annual large item bulk pick-up is scheduled for Friday October 21.
