Sanitation Division

Sanitation Services:

One (1) each 96 gallon roll cart was provided for use in collection of household garbage and yard waste to existing residents by the City of Florence when curbside collection was initiated in 1982.

There is a Roll Cart Maintenance Fee that is placed on your City Services Bill for maintenance and/or replacement of the initial roll cart at a residential location. Any additional roll carts must be purchased by the resident for $65, by calling the Utility Finance Department at 843-665-3155.

Yard Waste Removal

Leaves, grass clippings, pine straw, and other yard waste must be placed separately from your household garbage on the curb for collection.  Limbs should be cut to less than 5 feet in length; and pine straw, leaves, clippings, trimmings, etc., must be bagged in plastic bags for collection or inside your roll cart on your yard waste collection day. DO NOT MIX YARD WASTE AND HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE IN YOUR ROLL CART.  You will have to separate it before it can be collected. 

All yard waste debris must be in front of your property for collection. Sanitation will not pick up piles from vacant/empty lots. Call the Public Works Department to schedule pick up for any large debris piles to be picked up with the Cherry Picker truck.
