Carteret County Opens Sites for Storm Debris

BEAUFORT — Carteret County officials announced that three temporary debris sites opened Friday to accommodate the vast amount of vegetative debris and construction and demolition debris caused by Hurricane Florence.

While county residents may leave vegetative debris and construction and demolition debris in the right-of-way of state maintained roadways for removal, they may also take storm-related debris to one of the following sites:

  • Garner site, 293 Carl Garner Road, Newport.
  • Otway site, 485 Harkers Island Road, Beaufort – for vegetative debris only.
  • Fredeen /Highway 58 site, 1494 Highway 58, Peletier.

Beaufort Shelter Closes

The Carteret County Emergency Operations Center closed the Beaufort Elementary School shelter at 10 a.m. Friday, based on low census numbers. The few residents still at the Beaufort Elementary School shelter were to be relocated to the Newport Middle School shelter. Shelter residents needing transportation to the Newport Middle School shelter will be transported by the CCATS public transportation system.

The Newport Middle School shelter at 500 E. Chatham St. in Newport remains open.
