New City of Charleston Garbage and Trash Contractor

The following information has been provided to the POA by the City of Charleston.

Beginning Monday, January 4, 2021, the City of Charleston’s new garbage and trash contractor, Capital Waste Services, will begin work on Daniel Island/Cainhoy.

In order to provide the best possible service to these residents, the area has been split into two service days:

  • Residents living south of 526 will be serviced on Mondays (red on map). Service will begin Monday, January 4th, 2021
  • Residents living north of 526 will be serviced on Tuesdays (blue on map). Service will begin Tuesday, January 5th, 2021

Collection on the applicable service day will include yard waste, bulk items and garbage. Recycling may be added to the garbage cart, as it will be sorted out at the Re-Power South facility. Single Stream recycling will continue as before with owners placing their recycling items in the City of Charleston green trash cans.

Please note that due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the city is currently not collecting items located outside of the city issued carts, including boxes and additional garbage bags.

Postcards containing additional information and reminders regarding the transition from Republic to Capital Waste will be mailed on December 17th to the residents who were previously serviced by Republic Services. For those of you who live in a condo, townhome or apartment and have previously been serviced by another vendor this will not affect you.

Should you experience any issues with this new service, please call the Citizens Service Desk at 843-724-7311 or click HERE to report the problem and staff will work to have it resolved quickly.

Thank you for your patience during this transition, and we look forward to seeing improved service in the New Year.
