Wednesday refuse customers: your spring cleanup collection comes Monday

If you have your refuse and recycling collected on Wednesdays in the city of Charleston, this weekend would be a good time to do some spring cleaning around your home.

The City of Charleston’s special “Spring Cleanup” refuse collection continues on Monday, May 8 for homes along regular Wednesday routes. This special pick-up is in addition to regularly scheduled collection each week.

“On Mondays in May, we have special crews assigned to specific parts of the city to collect furniture, appliances and other non-traditional garbage that people throw out as they do their own spring cleaning in their homes,” said Charleston Mayor Danny Jones. “Our crews will not pick up batteries, toxic substances or paint cans that have not be properly dried, but they will collect just about everything else people place on the curb at the appropriate time.”

The special collections will continue over the following two Mondays as well – May 15 for regular Thursday customers and May 23 for people on Friday collection routes.
