OPERATION LOCK UP LITTER
KBCB recently collaborated with the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office in an effort to clean up our roadways utilizing our citizens and various local groups. You can help us by volunteering and/or reporting littered roadways. In just two pick ups, there has been 1,440 pounds of roadside litter removed. If you are interested in either volunteering or reporting, please go to the BCSO website or click here.
LITTER SWEEP
From April 10, 2021 to April 24, 2021, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) will be hosting its spring litter sweep. The department has enough supplies to assist residents with any roadside cleanups they conduct. They provide the supplies, you donate a few hours of your time, and they pick up and dispose of the bags. To participate, contact the NCDOT at (910) 754-6527. Please remember to report your pickup once complete so the bags can be picked up.
MOSQUITO SEASON
Mosquitoes will be here before you know it, so now is the time to prepare. Mosquitos here in Brunswick County lay their eggs in containers that hold water. A lot of these containers are man-made and are found around our homes. They can be tires, tin cans, buckets, bird baths, clogged drains, or anything that holds water. Of course, there are natural containers such as holes in trees and rocks as well but the man-made containers are within our control. One of the best methods used to control the production of these pests is what we call the “Tip and Toss”. Simply tip any containers that you have laying around and toss the water out. One small container can house hundreds of larva. If you have questions regarding mosquitoes in Brunswick County, call Brunswick County Mosquito at (910) 253-2515.
MULCH
The Brunswick County Landfill has a large amount of mulch ready just in time for spring. Are you planning a garden or building up your flower beds? This is a great product, full of nutrients! It's free to all Brunswick County residents and property owners.

You can take a little bit or a lot, it's totally up to you!
