The Mount Pleasant Waste Management Division will finish the 2nd pass in all areas that are not currently being worked by contractors. We are also finishing a few areas that were inadvertently missed, and picking up piles along main roads. We will resume normal collection operations (Municipal Solid Waste, Vegetative Debris, and Non-Vegetative Debris) on Monday 30 Sept on our normal Monday route.
The contractors are trying to finish in Brookgreen Meadows and the areas around it, Creekside Park, Wharf Indigo, and conducting a 2nd pass in the area north of Lieben Road and Hwy 17. They are also clearing debris out of our transfer yard to make room for non-vegetative debris that we will start collecting on Monday.
