Convenience Centers to Accept Non-Storm Generated Yard Waste

On Monday, December 12, all Beaufort County Convenience Centers will resume accepting limited amounts of non-storm generated yard waste (Class 1).

Class 1 waste accepted at Convenience Centers includes small limbs and landscape trimmings. No leaves will be accepted at Convenience Centers. Capacity for this material is limited. No trailers or large loads will be accepted. Residents who wish to drop off waste in bags should use paper bags. Plastic bags are prohibited.

Debris removal contractors are making the second pass through the County. Residents are asked to sort Class 1 and Class 2 debris into separate piles on the right-of-way at their residence for collection. The separation categories for debris placed at rights-of-way are:

  • Class 1 waste – includes small limbs, leaves and landscape trimmings.
  • Class 2 waste – includes building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, mattresses and plumbing items.

The County advises residents not to block fire hydrants, stormwater ditches or utility boxes when placing items at the right-of-way.

Residents are encouraged to visit the Beaufort County Solid Waste and Recycle Department web page for more information about the County’s Convenience Centers.
