Curbside Collection for Household Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste
Curbside collection of household trash, recycling and yard waste is scheduled on the same day each week. The service day for each customer is based on the residence location within one of four collection routes: Beachfront, North, Central, and South. All items shall be placed at the curb on the designated collection day under the following guidelines.
Household Trash (Garbage)
Commercial Collection Schedule:
Multifamily and commercial garbage collection is provided through the use of bulk containers. It is scheduled on an "as needed" basis with the property manager and/or individual business. This service may be provided by the city or by a private waste hauler at the option of the property manager or commercial establishment.
Transfer Station & Landfill
All solid waste collected in the City is taken to a transfer station, loaded onto trailers, and hauled to the Horry County landfill for final disposal. The Horry County Solid Waste Authority (www.solidwasteauthority.org) operates the landfill.
Residents that need to dispose of large quantities of construction/ renovation waste should haul this debris directly to the convenience center or landfill. Contractors are responsible for the transportation and disposal of all waste created by their activities. All contractor-generated waste should be hauled directly to an approved landfill.
The City provides a special collection service for bulky items such as furniture, appliances, etc. This is not regularly scheduled but is provided on an as needed basis. Please call the Sanitation Division prior to placing these items at the street to ensure prompt pickup.
The City does not pick up construction debris, land-clearing debris, hazardous material, medical waste, or automotive waste (batteries, oil, etc.). Please call for assistance in disposing of these items.
