Dumpsters have been dropped off in downtown Whiteville for businesses cleaning up after Hurricane Idalia flooded around half of downtown.
Whiteville City Manager Darren Currie said the green containers are for building materials and non-natural materials being removed from the 40 or so businesses that sustained flood damage Thursday and Friday.
The dumpsters are for business use only.
Residents and businesses with natural debris, such as leaves and limbs, may place those beside the curb for regular pickup. Currie cautioned that contractors removing downed trees and yard debris are responsible for transporting and disposal of tree cuttings,
Homeowners must take discarded and damaged building materials to the county landfill, Currie said.
