The Town of Mount Pleasant requires the use of paper bags for loose yard debris collections. Paper bags help remove plastics from the waste stream and reduce the need for petroleum based products.
Click the link below to see what your neighborhood collection day is:
Our trucks are on the road at 7 am. Your container and debris should be at the curb by that time. We do not have a set time. Even if we come by your house everyday at the same time, we may have to switch routes if a driver is out sick. Such instances can cause a shift in pick-up times.
Please contact the Public Services Department office at (843) 849-2022. There are many reasons why we may have not made a collection! We may have been by early and your container was not out, you may have had non-collectable debris, or we may have had a route change that missed you by accident!
Our collection services begin at 7:00 am. Your garbage container may not have been at your curbside at that time or there may have been items in your container that we must collect separately. Please contact our Public Services Department office at (843) 849-2022 to discuss your circumstances.
Please place your extra bags on the top of your container so we know that they are garbage.
