Charleston County Environmental Management Department announces the completion of improvements to the recycling dropsite located at 1716 Signal Point Rd, Charleston 29412.

Starting Tuesday, July 7th, this staffed site will now accept household hazardous waste from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays. 

The staffed convenience center portion of the site will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Standard household recyclables, such as paper, cardboard and containers #1-7, may be dropped off anytime. Improvements to the site were necessitated by an increase in awareness and participation in the County’s recycling program.

“The County’s successful All-In-One recycling program, which has made recycling easier with the use of curbside roll carts, has shown an increase in recycling participation and has also served to raise awareness about the need to put waste in its proper place,” says Charleston County Councilmember Anna Johnson. “Converting the County’s Signal Point Road recycling dropsite location to a staffed convenience center allows residents to safely and easily dispose of their household hazardous waste and keeps these materials out of our landfill.”

Items accepted during specified convenience center hours:

  • Standard household recyclables (cardboard, paperboard, magazines, newspaper, office paper, bagged shredded paper, junk mail, plastic bottles and containers #1-7, aluminum & steel cans, and glass bottles & jars)
  • Household hazardous waste (paint, pesticides, fertilizers, batteries, CFL bulbs)
  • Used motor and cooking oil
  • Used electronics, computers and TVs
  • Used tires
  • Corrugated cardboard

Items accepted anytime:

  • Standard household recyclables (cardboard, paperboard, magazines, newspaper, office paper, bagged shredded paper, junk mail, plastic bottles and containers #1-7, aluminum & steel cans, and glass bottles & jars)
  • Corrugated cardboard
