Convenience Station Improvements
Over the years slight improvements have been made to implement functional components to the convenience station. We have added concrete pads using Keep America Beautiful grants and also a second gate.
The next phase includes modifying the layout of the containers to provide access through one gate and egress through a separate gate. The ramps will be eliminated, the site will be graded and graveled throughout with all containers accessible from the ground. Signage in English and Spanish will be added. The site will be monitored via cameras to assure compliance with site rules.

The Town is going to implement upgrades to the convenience station. The Town will close the station for business on September 9 and reopen September 24, 2019. As a reminder, the Town does not accept the following items at the convenience station-tires, paint, electronics (TVs or computers), chemicals, batteries, explosives or fluorescent light bulbs.
Residents can take up to 5 tires to the Colleton County landfill. Paint that has been dried out with sand or kitty litter, electronics, and batteries can be taken to the Colleton County landfill or the site at Bennett’s Point. No Colleton County sites take chemicals or explosives.
