Keep America Beautiful is celebrating the 23rd Great American Cleanup between March and June this year, and as part of that celebration, the City will provide bulk waste collection containers in neighborhood locations beginning Monday, April 12. This month-long spring cleanup event is being made possible by a grant from Palmetto Pride, SC’s anti-litter and beautification organization.
The containers are intended for city residents’ use only and will be monitored. Contractor use is prohibited. Residents are asked to maintain social distance at all times and allow the person in front of them to finish before approaching a container. All items must fit inside the container.
Accepted items include furniture, paint cans (filled with sand or cat litter to absorb liquid), dirt, rock, rubble, brick, block, concrete, wooden planks, boards, treated wood and yard waste greater than six feet long or six inches in diameter. The following items will not be accepted: household garbage, recyclables, hazardous building material, construction material and chemicals.
As a reminder, the City’s regular curbside pickup of bulk waste is still available, but as always, is limited to two items and residents must call at least one day ahead to schedule a bulk waste pickup. The City’s regular curbside pickup of yard waste is also still available but is limited to items less than six feet long or six inches in diameter.
