Acceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

  • Yard Debris – bagged leaves/grass clippings (must be placed in brown paper yard bags – landfills do NOT accept yard debris in plastic bags), brush, tree limbs (4 feet or shorter not larger than 8 inches in diameter and no stumps) It is important to separate yard debris from other trash items because it goes to a different landfill than all other items.
  • Appliances and metal items
  • Furniture, and other non-food items that you are unable to donate or recycle
  • E-waste – Environmental regulations prohibit the disposal of televisions, computers, and other electronic equipment in landfills. These items must be placed separately at the curb for special collection/recycling. The Town will collect the items if un-broken. Please call (843) 849-2022 if you have E-waste to be picked up and we will get it as soon as possible. However, it may not be a same-day pick-up. Residents can also take their E-waste to County drop-off sites or big box electronic stores for proper disposal.

Unacceptable Items for Bulk Pickup

  • Engine Parts
  • Hazardous materials – such as old pesticides, creosote materials (railroad ties)
  • Oil (used oil can be recycled at our Six Mile Facility)
  • Tires
  • Batteries
  • Wet Paint 
  • Tree Stumps
  • Bricks 
  • Concrete
  • Contractor-generated debris from construction, demolition, remodeling, or landscaping (these materials should be hauled away by your contractor and disposed of properly).
  • COMPACT FLORESCENT LIGHTBULB (CFL) DISPOSAL – These bulbs may NOT be disposed of in your garbage or trash due to mercury contamination issues. Although beneficial, CFLs do contain a small amount of mercury, which is hazardous to humans and the environment. Disposing of CFLs correctly is crucial. Charleston County recycles CFL light bulbs, and residents can bring their old CFL light bulbs to one of the eight Convenience Centers located throughout the County that accept CFLs.
  • Propane Tank Disposal

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Mount Pleasant and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
