Summer move out trash collection program

May 22, 2024

Building on last year’s success, the Solid Waste Division will once again focus on expedited trash collection for move outs, specifically. Solid Waste experiences large increases in bulk item collection during the spring and summer months due to college students moving out from rental properties.

With focused efforts on beautifying the City, the Solid Waste Division will be offering expedited collection services until July 31, 2024 to assist in quick removal of move out piles.

Residents are encouraged to call the Solid Waste main office at 803-545-3800 to report they have a pile for collection. Solid Waste will in turn collect the pile within 24-48 hours. Items in these piles can include, but not limited to:

  1. Clothing
  2. Dishes, kitchen tools and utensils
  3. Furniture
  4. Bedding
  5. Storage bins
  6. Artwork or wall hangings
  7. Mops, brooms or other cleaning tools
  8. Bulky plastics (i.e. coolers, buckets or bathroom garbage pails)

Residents are first and foremost encouraged to rethink their waste. Before tossing items to the curb, assess the quality of the items. Items listed above that are in good condition can have a new life and stay out of the landfill by donating these to a local nonprofit in need.
