Beaufort County Board of Commissioners Vote To Adjust Operating Schedule of Solid Waste Collection Sites

Press Release:

    October 27, 2020     At a regular meeting on Monday, October 5, 2020, the Beaufort County Board of Commissioners voted 6-1 to adjust the operating schedule of the County solid waste collection sites.

    Beginning Sunday, November 1, 2020, the collection sites will close one (1) hour earlier during the non-Daylight Savings Time period. This one-hour earlier closing is due to decreased use during the winter months and to help increase the safety of those using and operating the sites during shorter daylight periods. Collection sites will continue to operate on normal schedule during Daylight Savings Time.

    Also beginning Sunday, November 1, 2020, all collection sites will close one day per week based on the schedule that can be found HERE.

    This once per week closure will allow time for Republic Services, the County's solid waste contractor, to schedule cleaning, maintenance, and repairs at each site as needed. The one day per week closure will remain throughout the year.

    Both changes will offset costs of the County's solid waste management program. The County will continue to evaluate solid waste services to ensure that the needs of Beaufort County citizens are met while remaining fiscally responsible.
