Curbside collection of bulk items to resume

Residents again can make appointments to schedule curbside pickup of old furniture, appliances and other large objects as Richland County resumes collection of bulk items Wednesday, June 3.

Bulk item pickup is by appointment only. Call the County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Division at 803-576-2440.

After requesting an appointment, residents will be contacted by the company that services their community with a pickup date. Residents should avoid putting items on the curbside prior to making an appointment. Rather, items should be placed on the curbside by 7 a.m. on the date of the scheduled appointment.

Accepted items include:

  • White goods (e.g., refrigerators, freezers, stoves, washers, dryers, dishwashers, water heaters)
  • Brown goods (e.g., chairs, sofas, tables, mattresses, box springs)
  • Metal grills (no gas or propane tanks)
  • Push lawn mowers (gas and oil removed)
  • Bicycles
  • Patio furniture and plastic pools

Items not accepted can be taken to the County’s C&D Landfill, 1070 Caughman Road, or to the Lower Richland Drop-off Center, 10531 Garners Ferry Road. The landfill is open 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturdays. The Lower Richland site operates 12:30 p.m.-5 p.m. Sundays and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Residents can dispose of many items at Richland Recycles Day, set for June 27 at the State Fairgrounds. Items accepted for drop-off include: tires, electronics, televisions, metal items, paint, cooking oil, paper for shredding and household hazardous waste (e.g., solvents, cleaners, chemicals, pesticides, fluorescent light bulbs).

Furniture and mattresses will not be accepted at this event, which is open to Richland County residents only.
