Hurricane Irma; Trash Collection

City Council Meeting originally scheduled for September 12th will move to September 19th at 6:30pm.

ATTENTION: Berkeley County is opening the landfill on Tuesday (9/12). Our Public Works Department WILL now be operating on our normal Tuesday schedule. Monday’s household waste will be collected on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will be a normal collection schedule.

Reminder: Yard Debris cannot be larger than 4ft in length and 4″ in diameter collected by the City. Individual piles cannot be more than 4′ x 4′ x 4′.

UPDATE:  Trash collection will be coming by twice today in case residents did not get their cans to the roadway in time.

Public Works Collection Update

The City of Hanahan Public Works Division continues to service all areas of Hanahan with the removal of storm debris.  Crews will continue to work extended days and hours in an effort to clean our city.  Presently the crews are working 10 hour days Monday through Friday and 6 hours on Saturday.  The collection schedule is cut-off each day to coincide with the closing of the landfill.

The week of October 10th alone produced 212 tons (normal week 118 tons) of residential household waste, 151 tons (normal week 42 tons) of yard debris and 15 tons (normal week 5 tons) of brown goods and all collected by Hanahan Public Works staff.

We intend to continue running extended yard debris hours in addition to our normal operating schedule until all storm debris has been removed.

If you have large piles and wood larger than 4” in diameter, those piles will be picked up exclusively by the County (if you live on a county road) or SCDOT (if you live on a state road) with specialized equipment.  The county started collections in the city this week and the state has communicated a start date of 10/26-10/28.  The county and state contractors will only make one pass for large piles and wood so please be sure to have your debris by the road.

We would like to thank all citizens for their patience and continued efforts to work with us as we work to recover from the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.

Public Works Collection Update & Debris Information

Public Works Collection Update

The Public Works Department has been able to collect all normal household waste collections this week and will do so through Friday’s collections.  In the first three days this week we also collected 131 tons of yard debris which equates to our typical monthly totals.  The Department also brought in contract workers and ran 12 hour days during this time.  Our plans are to continue this effort through tomorrow and also run full crews dedicated to yard debris on Saturday.  If you have large piles and wood larger than 4” in diameter, those piles will be picked up exclusively by the county or state with specialized equipment.  Due to the storm and closure of the landfill we were unable to collect household waste last Thursday and Friday and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we complete those collections today and Friday.

Storm Debris

It is the responsibility of Berkeley County (along county roads) and SCDOT (state roads) to collect Storm Debris throughout Hanahan and Berkeley County.  We have been in contact with the State and County and they have each contracted with private vendors to handle collections throughout the county in coordination with FEMA.  We will share specific collection info. as it becomes available to us from the county and state.

Construction Debris

The county will have a container for construction debris in Otranto by the fire station this Saturday (10/15) from 9:00am-4:00pm.  A City of Hanahan employee will be on site to assist.


We’d like to thank our Public Works and Recreation Maintenance staffs for getting a jump start on collecting storm debris and also thank those that have expressed their appreciation and support for the crews.  We appreciate your patience during this time as we make every effort to bring our city back to order ASAP.
