Important Updates

Staff is currently working through logistics with Waste Industries regarding the company’s taking over trash and recycling collection for the Town of Beaufort. In an effort to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible, it has been decided to wait until April before transferring that service completely to Waste Industries. A firm date will be announced in mid-March. In the meantime, Public Works will continue to collect household waste on Mondays, recycling on Tuesdays and yard and bulk items on Wednesdays. We will continue to seek public input in the coming weeks. Please email any concerns, questions or suggestions to Public Information Officer Jennifer Allen at j.allen@beaufortnc.org


Talk Trash” with a representative from Waste Industries will be held 4-6 p.m. Feb. 22, 4-6 p.m. March 8 and 4-6 p.m. March 22 in the Train Depot, 614 Broad St. Citizens are encouraged to come and ask any questions they have about the new trash collection process. If you can't make these informal meetings, you can check out this film made in Hillsborough that shows how easy the carts are to handle and where to place properly for pick up.


Ricks Avenue is closed to through traffic until further notice due to a failed 36" culvert, which has caused a sink hole in the roadway. Crews are currently being scheduled for repairs. Updates will be provided as they become available. Contact Town Hall at 252-728-2141 for more details.

My neighbor hasn’t cut their grass in a while - what do I do?

During the warmer months and rainy season we get this question often. Our office is responsible for the code enforcement of all nuisance violations. You are welcome to contact us through email or by calling us at 252-728-2142. A lot of these type violations are corrected quickly however some take longer depending on the type of violation and the situation regarding the violation. Every effort will be made to keep you informed of the violation status if it is your desire to be informed.
Code enforcement by the Planning and Inspection Department does apply to building permitting (or “building” without a permit), a certificate of appropriateness (or doing work without a COA), etc. Please contact our office at 252-728-2142 or d.graham@beaufortnc.org for more information or to place a report of such violations.
