Beaufort SC - FEMA debris removal guidelines

Officials in Beaufort County have asked citizens returning to the area post-Hurricane Matthew and beginning the clean-up the process to NOT bring yard debris to county convenience centers.

Rather, you should leave debris on the side of the roadways to be picked up by private contractors. Please try to not block roadways.

  • Lobeco Convenience Center, 6 Keans Neck Road
  • Pritchardville Convenience Center, 270 Gibbet Road
  • Shanklin Convenience Center, 80 Shanklin Road
  • St. Helena Convenience Center, 639 Sea Island Parkway
The Convenience Centers will only be accepting bagged, household garbage (Class 3).

Residents should not bring Class 1 (yard debris) or Class 2 (construction debris) storm debris to the Convenience Centers at this time. The County will issue a notice when collection of these materials starts again.

Residents should sort Class 1 and Class 2 debris into separate piles and leave it on the right of way / curb at their residence: 

  • Class 1 debris includes tree limbs, leaves and tree logs cut into sections. 
  • Class 2 debris includes building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, mattresses, and plumbing items.
