SCDOT debris pickup continues into the weekend

CHARLESTON, SC – Charleston County crews will continue this week with debris removal in the City of Charleston, Isle of Palms, Johns Island and additional areas as needed. The operation includes vegetation and construction and demolition debris. As of 10-15, crews have picked up 62 truckloads of debris, equaling more than 3,200 cubic yards.

  • Do not put debris material in black bags. The items will not be picked up as debris since it cannot be seen and is normally municipal waste.
  • If possible, household hazardous waste should be taken to County Convenience Sites for disposal rather than left at the curb.
  • Please avoid placing debris near utilities along the road.
