Is Pender County still picking up debris along the roads from Hurricane Matthew?

Bill Walsh

The collection of vegetative debris is the responsibility of the state, not the county, according to Pender County Manager Randell Woodruff.

N.C. Department of Transportation still has four crews working in Pender, according to Chris Rhodes, county maintenance engineer. Two are working in Hampstead, one in and around Rocky Point, and a fourth moving around the county; they expect to finish their work in the next week or so.

But NCDOT is removing hurricane debris on public roads, not on private roads, and it is likely that if they have not picked up in Willows Bay it is because the development is served by private roads. Rhodes promised to double check.
