Although mandatory evacuations for Hurricane Florence have been lifted in Beaufort County, not everything will be back to normal by Wednesday.

As of Tuesday afternoon, here’s a lowdown of when trash and recycling services will resume operations.

Town of Bluffton

Bluffton announced that Waste Management will operate Wednesday but on a one-day delay. Anyone whose trash would normally be collected Tuesday will be collected Wednesday; anyone whose trash would be collected Wednesday will be collected Thursday, and so on. Some routes may also be affected depending on employee turnout, as some had already evacuated prior to it being lifted.

Beaufort County Collection Sites

Beaufort County collection sites will be closed at least through the end of this week, according to Sheriff P.J. Tanner at a Wednesday press conference.

Waste Management

Waste Management operations will resume Wednesday on a one-day delay schedule.

May River Disposal

May River Disposal will also reopen Wednesday with a one-day delay schedule.

American Pride Waste Solutions

It is operating normally today and plans to operate normally, “for now.” The company will be open Wednesday.
