The City of North Charleston has contracted with Carolina Waste to provide residential trash collection in Dorchester County. A new roll cart, compatible with the equipment of Carolina Waste, is necessary for future collection.
New roll carts will be delivered by Carolina Waste to your home’s curbside between Monday, June 25 and Friday, June 29. Your current City of North Charleston roll cart will be collected.
You will receive a notification in the mail stating your NEW pick up date. On your collection day, place the cart no more than 3 feet from the street and at least 3 feet from any object, car, mailbox, etc.
Garbage removal is provided on a weekly basis according to the outline below. Household garbage must be placed in the roll cart containers provided by the City. Additional garbage contained in non-standard containers will be picked up from time to time; however, if a resident routinely generates more garbage than can be held in the provided container they will be required to purchase the use of an additional container for regular collection. Containers should be placed at street side before 7:00 am on collection day. They are not to be placed more than 12-hours prior to that time and must be removed within 12 hours of pick-up.
All Garbage MUST be placed within a city provided roll cart. Household are allowed to purchase 1 additional roll cart for a one-time fee of $65. To order an additional roll cart, call 843-745-1026.
Please remember that lawn clippings and leaves, bagged in paper yard waste bags, are collected on the same day that household garbage is collected. Yard debris bagged in plastic will NOT be collected.
To request a service or provide notification of an issue, either call (843) 745-1026 or submit your concern online.
Beginning July 1, 2015, the City of North Charleston will only pick up yard waste in paper bags for curbside pickup. Plastic bags for disposal will no longer be collected.
