The HMRO started shortly after Hurricane Matthew left the region and immediately following the initial damage assessment of Charleston County. The contractor, AshBritt, County crews, and municipal crews have been collecting vegetative and construction debris throughout all areas of the County. The operation included the establishment of Temporary Debris Storage and Reduction sites to expedite pickup operations. Grinding operations are underway at those sites where the material will be processed for final disposal.
