SOUTH CAROLINA (WCSC) -

Contractors with the South Carolina Department of Transportation will begin the final week of flood-related debris pickup in several counties on Monday, Nov. 16, a news release states. 

SCDOT crews will pick up debris in the following counties this week: 

  • Berkeley County
  • Clarendon County
  • Dorchester County
  • Lexington County
  • Richland County
  • Sumter County
  • Williamsburg County

The state Department of Transportation has removed 1,784 loads of debris to date.

According to the SCDOT, crews will only pick up flood-related debris. 

A news release says the debris should be separated and put on the back of the highway right-of-way. Do not stack or lean debris near or on trees, poles, fire hydrants or other structures, as it makes removal difficult.
