Post Date:09/24/2019 3:00 PM

Dorchester County Public Works contractor, Crowder Gulf, began vegetative debris removal operations on Monday, September 16. In the first week, approximately 12,000 Cubic Yards of debris, enough to fill four Olympic size swimming pools, was removed from the Kings Grant, Ashborough, Ashborough East, Archdale, Legend Oaks, Meadow Run, Dorchester Regency, and Windsor Hill subdivisions.

Currently, crews are focusing their efforts in the Appian Way/Park Forest Parkway area, Windsor Hill, Knightsville, Legend Oaks, and westward along Dorchester Rd.

Residents are reminded that only one pass will be made. If their area has already been picked up, they should dispose of any/all remaining debris at the Miles Jamison or Sandy Pines Convenience Sites.

All curbside debris removal should conclude within the next 7-10 days; however, all work is dependent on the weather and therefore that time frame is subject to change.

Dorchester County Public Works Director, Jason Carraher stated, “I am pleased with the speed and efficiency of Crowder Gulf during the debris removal process. We ask that residents continue to be patient as clean-up efforts continue over the next several days.”

Should residents have questions about curbside debris removal they are asked to contact the Dorchester County Public Works Department at (843) 563/832-0070.
