Due to expected high winds from Hurricane Michael, the City of Columbia will be postponing solid waste collections for Thursday, October 11, 2018.
Thursday service areas for garbage, recycling and yard waste will be collected on Friday, October 12, 2018. Friday service areas will be collected on Saturday, October 13, 2018.
With high winds as a factor in this storm, there are concerns for citizen and personnel safety. Roll carts and bulk items at the curb are potential projectile hazards. The City also does not want items in roll carts to become litter. It is recommended to keep roll carts and bulk items as secure as possible.
The City is urging residents to refrain from putting yard trash and bulk items at the curb. This will help keep storm drains and roads clear of debris to reduce potential flooding. Bagging yard trash is not required, but recommended during potential high winds and storms.
Residents are encouraged to sign up for the “Columbia, SC Solid Waste” app to find their schedule and receive service alerts. There is also an online calendar and alert system for those without smartphones.
