Corner Icon Recycling? 

Please do not bag your recyclables when placing them in the blue bin or green rollout container.  Using bags slows the sorting process! 

Corner Icon Pets on the beach? 

From May 1 through Labor Day, dogs are allowed on the beach only before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.  On the boardwalk from May 1 through Labor Day, dogs are allowed only in the mornings, from 5:00 to 10:00 a.m.  At all times when dogs are allowed in public, they must be on a leash of seven feet or shorter, and you must pick up and properly dispose of your pet's droppings.

Solid Waste Division


Collection schedules and zones


The city is divided into four collection zones to improve solid waste services for our residential customers.  With this schedule, one zone receives complete service each day, Monday through Thursday. All household garbage, recycling, yard waste and bulky junk are picked up on the same day each week.  Put yard waste in bags or other containers, but do not mix yard waste with household refuse.  The Solid Waste Division also operates a solid waste transfer station on Mr. Joe White Avenue.  For more information, call (843) 918-2160.  

NEW!  A $2 per month solid waste fee gives residential customers the option of choosing between two sizes of solid waste roll-out carts and two sizes of recycling roll-out carts.  Previously, customers purchased the carts at a cost of up to $70 each.  You may choose a blue solid waste roll-out cart in either the current 96 gallon size or a smaller 64 gallon size.  Similarly, you may choose a green roll-out recycling cart in either the current 48 gallon size or a larger 64 gallon size.  We've had requests for smaller solid waste carts and larger recycling carts, so this gives customers more options and encourages more recycling.  If you purchased one of the carts in the past two years, the purchase price will be refunded.  For more information, call the Solid Waste Division at 843-918-2160.

RECYCLING:  Blue Bins and Green Rollout Carts

Do not separate or bag recyclables.  Simply place clean recycling materials into the blue bin or rollout cart, and then place the bin or cart on the curb on your regular collection day.  Sorting is accomplished at the Solid Waste Authority’s Material Recycling Facility.  Recyclable materials include aluminum, steel, tin and aerosol cans; glass jars and bottles of any color; plastic jugs, bottles and containers; cardboard and paperboard; newspapers, magazines and junk mail.  (Shredded paper should be placed in a clear plastic bag, then placed into the bin.  Otherwise, do not sort, separate or bag any items.)  Materials that cannot be accepted include sheet glass, mirrors, light bulbs, ceramic items and wax-coated boxes.  The blue bins are for recycling materials only. Non-recyclable items will be considered contamination and will cause the bins not to be emptied.


If you have too much bulky waste to wait for the weekly pick up, call 918-2160, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., for a collection appointment.
