Garbage Collection Schedule

Household Garbage:  Tuesdays (2nd collection on Fridays during summer season)

Bulk Trash/Yard Debris:  Wednesdays

Summer Season Schedule runs from Memorial Day - Labor Day  

Please contact your Town Hall (843)883-3198 (option #3/#0) with a trash collection question or to report concerns. Town Staff and our vendor have established a procedure to report any of your concerns and facilitate a quick resolution for you.  


Important Notes:  
* Trash & yard debris are only collected from residences, not vacant lots or residences where lawn contractors have done lawn maintenance.

*  Trash should be placed curbside in roll out carts by 7:00AM on collection and rolled back from curb by 7:00PM that day.   
Our vendor attempts to collect some or all yard debris from every residence island-wide every week. Depending upon the volume of yard debris, our vendor may collect some of your yard debris and return that day or the next yard debris collection day to collect the remainder.  This policy ensures all residents have an opportunity to get some yard debris collected before trucks reach maximum collection capacity.
