Cleaning up after Michael

Hurricane Michael may be winding down but clean up is just getting started! As power is restored, there are still overwhelming amounts of debris in various parts of South Carolina.

It is no easy or quick task to clean up debris after a storm. Large trees and damaged property can remain in areas for months or even years.

However, most counties in the midlands and Pee Dee areas of South Carolina are prepared to help you clear the debris with yard debris pick-up programs. Most counties have implemented year-round programs to gather debris.

The year round programs that assist with removing debris in various counties are making an effort to help citizens remove trees, fallen limbs and more.

Be sure to pay attention to the rules and regulations in your county. In Richland County, things like boards, lumber, tile, bricks will not be taken in with debris.

If you would like more information on the debris pick-ups in Richland County, Sumter County or Kershaw County, follow the links.
