Solid waste decals now in use for re-entry process

Currituck County is excited to announce a pilot project to evaluate, understand and improve the effectiveness of combining departmental permit efforts between Public Works & Emergency Management. Effective today, current Public Works Solid Waste Permits will also function as Currituck Outer Banks residents’ and property owners’ re-entry permit for the 2022 calendar year. The project’s objective is to increase collaboration across departments and provide a one-stop shop for residents, property owners and renters to obtain their required permit(s).

Key Points:

  • Public Works Solid Waste Permits will also function as Currituck Outer Banks residents’ and property owners’ re-entry permit for the 2022 calendar year
    • The current permits were sent to all residents and property owners, accompanied by the tax bill, in August 2020
    • No action is required if you already have a permit(s)
  • This is a trial-based project for 2022 in which staff will evaluate the combined effort and formulate a plan for 2023 and beyond
  • If Currituck Outer Banks residents or property owners would like to obtain new or additional decals, please visit https://currituckcountync.gov/public-works/solid-waste-permit-decal/. If you have questions, contact Public Works at 252-232-2504 or email at pwstaff@currituckcountync.gov
    • Renters can obtain permits directly with documentation such as mail, utility bills and lease agreements
  • Within the re-entry program, there will no longer be a permit distinction between property owners and residents nor between north and south of the 4×4 Ramp; new tiers are as follows:
    • Priority 1: Essential Personnel; Priority 2: Critical Businesses, Residents and Property Owners; Priority 3: Visitors and General Public
  • If there are specific questions about the re-entry process, please visit currituckreentry.com or contact staff at emstaff@currituckcountync.gov
  • These changes do not affect business re-entry permits
