The Town's FEMA debris removal contractors have now collected more than 75,000 cubic yards of vegetative and construction and demolition (C&D) debris in Topsail Beach, and continue to operate in the Town as weather permits.  Now this process is coming to an end.

The Town is requesting that all hurricane related debris from your property is placed at the street edge no later than Monday, January 8, 2019 to ensure that your debris is collected by the Town's contractor (at no charge to you).  Once the debris is removed from your street, debris collection and disposal will become the practical and financial responsibility of the property owner. Property owners who still need to gather debris on their property are encouraged to use the next few weeks to get it out by the 8th. 

Please note the debris contractor’s will not be working from December 23rd – January 2nd in observance of the Holiday Season.

As we continue to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Florence, many of us have questions about the proper procedures for repairing our beach walkways or piers.  The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and CAMA have a “CAMA Handbook for Development” that is very helpful in understanding the rules and requirements for your project.  The handbook will help answer many of your questions, with Section 4 being particularly useful. Town staff is always willing to help as well.

SOLID WASTE AND DEBRIS UPDATE – Topsail Beach will resume regular household trash pick-up service on Monday, September 24th.  Please place your trash cans away from any storm debris or vegetative piles wherever possible.

As a reminder, our storm-related debris contractor will begin vegetative debris pick-up early next week and will continue pick-up periodically.  Other debris, such as bulk items, electronics, hazardous waste, or Construction and Demolition (C & D)materials will be collected over the coming days and weeks.  Please be sure to separate these items into different piles since they do not all go to the same landfill.  According to FEMA regulations, any items placed in bags must utilize clear bags to identify the types of debris.

Thank you for your help.  If you have any questions, please contact the Topsail Beach Town Hall.
