Charleston County’s Environmental Management Department (formerly known as the Solid Waste and Recycling Department) has adjusted the hours of operation for its staffed convenience centers around daylight-saving time. The new hours will allow for the convenience centers to be open only during daylight hours.
The new hours for all convenience centers are:
•November 1 through March 1: Open 7:30am – 6pm daily except Wednesdays and Sundays, open 1 – 6pm.
•March 2 through October 31: Open 7am – 7pm daily except Wednesdays and Sundays, open 1 – 7pm.
The staffed convenience center closest to Kiawah, Seabrook and Johns Islands which accept both household garbage and recyclable materials, is located on Wadmalaw Island at the Wadmalaw Convenience Center, 1558 Liberia Road, 29487.
The Charleston County Recycling Center (located at 13 Romney Street in downtown Charleston) hours of operation will remain the same: 7am. – 6pm, Monday through Friday.
