Wake works to collect storm debris

Wake County says it's partnering with the N.C. Department of Transportation to collect storm-related debris.

Residents are asked to place debris along state maintained roads, but out of travel lanes, and in two piles:

- Vegetation such as trees and limbs cut into five - or six-foot pieces

- Building materials and furniture

Wake said it would announce roadside collection schedules as soon as they are available.

To expedite the debris removal process, residents may use the county’s convenience centers to drop off storm debris including vegetation and building-related debris. The facilities are open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
