Disaster Debris Removal from Private Rights-of-Ways, Final Pass Underway for Most of County

The third and final pass for debris removal in Beaufort County began today. The final pass is expected to be complete by the end of February
In areas of the County where the County’s contractor has not yet completed the second pass, CERES will continue to collect debris and will return later for a third and final pass. Any remaining hurricane-generated debris should be placed at the right-of-way.
Beaufort County has added eight communities to its list of approved communities for hurricane-related debris removal. Debris removal from Beaufort County private roads and rights-of-way, including gated communities, began on Tuesday, October 18 by the County’s contractor, Ceres Environmental.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency requires that the County receive a completed right of entry agreement before entering upon any private road or right-of-way.
As of today, the County has approved debris removal operations for 71 private communities, listed here:
