It’s been a year since Myrtle Beach’s new Solid Waste rules went into effect back in August 2020. We hope you’ve noticed a difference in your neighborhood! The city’s goal is to encourage customer compliance, improve community appearance and deter illegal dumping. A few things to note include the following: lids on solid waste containers must be closed completely; no additional garbage may be placed outside or on top of the pelican; and, customers who regularly have more garbage than fits in a pelican will be required to pay for an additional pelican.
