NCDOT to pick up storm debris in Davidson, Davie Counties

debris

RALEIGH — N.C. Department of Transportation crews will begin picking up debris along state-maintained roads in Davidson and Davie counties this week after March’s ice storm.

The first debris sweep in these counties will begin Tuesday, April 15, and is expected to take several weeks to complete.

Residents who live on state-maintained roads in Davidson and Davie counties are asked to place debris along the side of the roadway as soon as possible.

Do not place debris in travel lanes or in areas where it will block drainage, mailboxes or fire hydrants, or create issues for motorists and pedestrians.

Please keep the following in mind while collecting debris for removal:

• Check your homeowners insurance as often debris cleanup is covered by insurance and arrangements for its collection would be handled by the insurance company.
• NCDOT will only collect vegetation debris such as trees and limbs.
• Property owners are asked to cut storm-related vegetation debris into five- or six-foot pieces, if possible.
• Residents in counties that were affected, but do not meet the threshold for a federal declaration, should follow their county’s debris removal plan.

Citizens can contact their NCDOT County Maintenance Office with questions about debris removal or to determine if they live on a state-maintained road.

For the Davidson County maintenance office, call 249-7001; and for the Davie County maintenance office, call 751-2400.

    “Check your homeowners insurance as often debris cleanup is covered by insurance and arrangements for its collection would be handled by the insurance company”.

    Very bad advice! Haven’t you heard of “Use it, Lose it”. If you file a claim on your homeowners that is not a huge loss your premium will increase more than you collected or they may even cancel you. Homeowners insurance is only for catastrophic losses and then you may get cancelled like the folks in High Point who got hit by a tornado did.

    Insurance is only to send money in to them, not collect.
