New disposal requirements for airtight containers set at Convenience Centers

1 min read

Effective recently, County residents disposing of any type of airtight containers, such as refrigerators, freezers, and ice chests, will be directed to remove lids, doors, or other closing devices on these items prior to their disposal at County Convenience Centers. The County encourages residents to have the lids or doors removed prior to arriving onsite.

For safety purposes, South Carolina law requires removal of lids and doors from airtight containers, prior to abandonment, for those items with sufficient capacity to contain a child. County Convenience Centers currently accepting these types of items and other white goods and appliances include Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, Saint Helena Island, and Shanklin.
