Important Information Regarding Your Trash Collection Service

As of July 1, 2017, Columbus County began contracting with Waste Industries for residential trash pickup.  However, Waste Management, the previous contractor, still has some trash cans that need to be picked up and they are in the process of picking up their cans at this time.  

  • If you still have Waste Management trash cans, please place these cans out by the road so that they can be picked up by this weekend.  
  • If your old Waste Management trash can has not been picked up and you have not notified the county, please contact the Public Utilities Department at 641-3953 and give them your address. 
  • If you have not received a new trash can from Waste Industries, please contact the Columbus County Tax Office at 640-6636, ext 125.
