Following closures due to Hurricane Matthew, all Beaufort County Convenience Centers are now open. The centers will operate from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on their normal operating schedules, which entails all centers being closed on Wednesdays. The Convenience Centers will only be accepting bagged, household garbage (Class 3). Residents should not bring Class 1 (yard debris) or Class 2 (construction debris) storm-generated debris to the Convenience Centers at this time. Residents should sort Class 1 and Class 2 debris into separate piles and leave it on the right of way / curb at their residence for collection, being careful not to block fire hydrants, stormwater ditches, or utility boxes:
- Class 1 debris includes tree limbs, leaves and tree logs cut into sections.
- Class 2 debris includes building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, mattresses, and plumbing items.
Convenience Centers will begin to accept limited amounts of non-storm-generated Class 2 debris and recyclables starting Thursday, October 20, 2016. No trailers or large loads will be accepted.
Residents should call the County’s new customer service line for debris removal at 843-685-9880 with any questions.
