Mount Pleasant Public Services continues to collect debris associated with Hurricane Dorian.
- Mount Pleasant Waste Management crews will complete vegetative debris collection in I’on and then will continue collecting in neighborhoods down Mathis Ferry Road heading towards the bridge.
- Contractors (Paul Bunyan and County Waste) are collecting vegetative debris from Snee Farm; Dunes West; and Charleston National today.
- Charleston County is requesting all storm-related debris to be placed curbside by September 22nd.
- Please review the Debris Separation Guidelines on the graphic from FEMA here. The only storm debris authorized for collection for Hurricane Dorian is vegetative debris. If other items are mixed into vegetative debris piles, the pile may not be collected.
- Household garbage is on schedule so residents can continue placing their rollcarts curbside on their normal collection day.
- One Mount Pleasant Waste Management truck continues collecting non-vegetative trash. It is not following a specific route but is working to cover the entire Town as efficiently as possible. All other trucks have been assigned to vegetative debris collection.
- Make sure to keep all piles away from ALL utilities so we don’t damage critical infrastructure. Do not block roadways or sidewalks.
- We will conduct two passes for vegetative debris collection. The second pass will not begin until the first pass of the entire Town is complete.
- We will expand debris collection efforts as more contractor crews are made available to us from the county.
We will do our best to keep you informed of our plans and progress. We are cleaning what we can but ask for help on completing the finishing touches (sweeping and bagging leaves, cleaning up smaller debris left behind after piles are picked up, etc.) We thank you in advance for your patience.
