Moving out? You don't have to put the trash on the curb

Moving out this month and don't know what to do with the trash? Well officials are pleading with you to use a new service.

The College of Charleston is working with the City of Charleston to prevent college kids from dumping all their trash on the curb. They've set up public dumpsters and a hotline to report piled up waste.

Catch is, they'll only pick up furntiure and other goods, not household waste. Which strikes me as a bit odd, as the biggest problem I've seen is ripped apart trash bags. But, I digress.

Here's all the details from an e-mailed release [formatting has been cleaned up]:

On Friday, July 31st and Saturday, August 1st, the College of Charleston and the City of Charleston are working together to make cleaning up faster and easier.

Call the Clean Up Hotline: 720-3794 or 720-3795

Provide the address for pick-up and if you are leaving trash or reusable goods

Reusuble items can also be taken to the Charleston Habitat ReStore at 731 Meeting St.

Hours of Operation:
Mon. - Fri., 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sat., 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Got trash? - We will haul it away.

We've got 3 trash bins:

- Spring between Ashley and St. Philip

- Cannon between Rutledge and St. Philip

- Smith and Bull
