What's that $2.00 container fee on my City of Myrtle Beach utility bill?
Previously, customers purchased the blue rollout pelican for $70 and perhaps a green rollout recycling cart for $50, which meant that you had to come out of pocket $120 for these two pieces of equipment. We also had customers ask for different sizes of both carts -- a smaller pelican and a larger recycling cart. To accommodate those requests and save on the upfront cost, we created the $2.00 monthly fee. Now, when your pelican or recycling cart needs to be replaced, we will do so at no additional cost to you.
If you don't have a green recycling cart, you're welcome to request one, in either size. That cost is included in the $2.00 fee, and we'll even deliver it. Similarly, if you would like a smaller pelican, that's an option, too. To inquire further, please call the Solid Waste Division at 843-918-2160.
