Please be advised that on Tuesday January 7, 2014, Town Council voted to terminate the Franchise Agreement for residential Solid Waste and Recycling with Republic Waste Services effective March 31, 2014. Although it proved to be a successful partnership in regards to increasing the recycling rate, the Town of Hilton Head Island and Republic Waste Services decided to mutually end the requirement that there only be one waste and recycling hauler for island wide collections because of our unique collection and customer requirements.
Under the new Ordinance, waste haulers shall provide a reasonable voluntary single-stream recycling collection service to all residential dwellings which they service (excluding dumpster-based multi family dwellings). Recycling services shall be included in the base price for collection services of any waste hauler operating in the town. If you are currently using the green 35 gallon recycling container that was issued for recycling, you may keep this cart for future use.
This means that residents may contract with whomever they choose to provide services for their waste and recycling needs beginning on April 1, 2014. Residents are encouraged to start contacting waste haulers of their choice to make arrangements for April 1, 2014, since all collections made under the franchise agreement will end.
If you are a customer of Republic Waste Services, a notice with details of this transition was mailed on January 20, 2014.
The Following Companies have indicated by submission they intend to provide residential waste hauling services within the Town.
|American Pride Waste Solutions, Inc.||843-681-8900|
|Pro Disposal, Inc.||843-846-2333|
|Waste Management (Southern Waste Services)||843-987-0710|
|Waste Pro of South Carolina||843-645-4100|
We anticipate that many more companies will submit for approval and we will update the list as we receive their submission.
Residents may also continue to self-haul to the Beaufort County Convenience Center, located at 26 Summit Drive.
