There will be no curbside recycling on James Island on Monday. The schedule will resume on Tuesday. The James Island Public Service District will not be picking up solid waste in the Town on Monday either because the Bees Ferry Landfill will be closed and the JIPSD Signal Point Road facility cannot be accessed due to flooding.

Wastewater systems around the tri-county area including our James Island PSD are urging folks to reduce their water/wastewater usage as much as possible. Systems are unable to handle this rain amount. Stay away from floodwaters due to possible pollution by wastewater overflow.

The Town is operating at OPCON 4 and monitoring the threat of severe flooding on James Island. It appears that Hurricane Joaquin will go out to sea, however, the major threat to the area is significant flooding and heavy rains throughout the weekend. We will continue to monitor Hurricane Joaquin for any potential impacts along the Charleston County coast.
