Beginning Monday, April 20, city of Charleston trash collection (yard debris and bulk items such as furniture, appliances, bedding and other large objects) will resume normal routes. Due to the additional volume of trash, it may take two to three weeks to get everything collected, but crews will run their normal routes and collect as much as they can from each neighborhood.
Garbage collection (items inside of green carts) will continue on schedule. Citizens are reminded that cardboard and other items that are not inside the green garbage cart will not be collected for the safety of the crews. This change is consistent with Charleston County and other area municipalities in an effort to limit employees’ potential exposure to COVID-19. Any excess items that do not fit in the garbage cart can be taken to a Charleston County Convenience Center: https://www.charlestoncounty.org/departments/environmental-management/recycle-locations.php.
