When does the program start and how long will it last?

The grant funded program runs from January 1, 2021 - December 31, 2021.  This is a pilot program so methods of collection, storage and transport will be tested, especially during the first 6 months, and are subject to change after June 2021.  At the end of the grant project, methods and costs will be evaluated to see how effective the program can be and if it should be considered a permanent program in the future.

It is important to note, BedShred.com is a private mattress recycling pick up program serving the greater Charleston area, this service may continue on its own regardless of the City’s program.
