Charleston, S.C. — Due to a fire at the Republic Services Spring Grove Landfill in North Charleston on Monday, May 9, 2022, bulk trash (home construction materials, appliances, furniture, and the like) could not be collected today.
As a result, City of Charleston residents on the peninsula, in West Ashley and on James Island who normally have their trash picked up on Mondays are asked to remove their bulk trash (again, construction materials, appliances, et al.) from the street this week and bring it back to the curb for pickup next Monday.
Bulk trash pickup on Daniel Island was not impacted by the fire delay because that trash is processed in Berkeley County.
All garbage and trash collection will now continue as normal in all areas of the city.
"We are relieved to hear that the fire is out, and that everyone at the facility appears to be okay," Superintendent of Environmental Services Matt Alltop said. “In addition, we're sorry for today's bulk trash disruption, and look forward to returning to our regular routes tomorrow."
