When the venerable city fathers of Charleston decided to build our city on a tangled mass of islands and peninsulas that poke and jut all over the map, they probably weren't thinking about making it easy for you to drive from one side of town to another with a load of yard waste in the bed of your pickup truck. But that's exactly the situation in modern Charleston, and there's no need for you to even bother with the hassle of it all. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? offers comprehensive Charleston yard waste pickup to residential customers across the area, from St. John's Parish in the southwest (by the tree we all love but never get out to visit) to the enormous warehouse Wando High School is building in the northeast to hold all the trophies the band has been winning lately (well done, kids).
What is Yard Waste, and How Do We Get Rid of It?
Yard waste is a catchall term that covers basically everything that used to live in your backyard, but doesn't anymore. Grass clippings and pulled weeds are yard waste, as are fallen branches and cut-down trees. The compost heap you started last year that never turned into rich, loamy soil, but instead is now a slimy heap; that's yard waste. If you have somewhat more acreage than the usual homeowner, you might have more of this stuff than usual, and you might also have some special access restrictions that make getting to the waste harder than just backing up a truck and walking to it.
Whatever the challenges your Charleston yard waste pickup poses, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is more than up to it. Our teams live and work locally, so we know the terrain, from the dunes to the forest -- which are inexplicably right next to each other up north -- we have the know-how to get to where you're waiting for us with a pile of leaves you're not allowed to burn anymore and take them off your hands for you.
We Recycled Before it was Cool!
When you call 1-800-GOT-JUNK? for yard waste clearance, we ask you a few questions about how much you have, where it's at and when you want it collected. Then, when we get to your property -- always on time -- all you have to do is unhitch the fence and shoo away the cows; we'll do everything else. If you have any concerns about safety or chemical hazards from the compost or some stray poison oak that might be all over the stuff we're hauling, just let us know over the phone and we'll be ready for it when we arrive.
Once we have your green waste, we take it straightaway to our nearby facility, where we sift through it and send as much of it as possible for environmentally responsible composting (we're a little more experienced at it than most slime-pile owners). Whatever we can mulch goes back onto the land to help recharge the soil; whatever we can't goes to a sealed landfill that speeds up decomposition in a way that's safe for the environment and good for the whole community we live in.
