Don’t blow yard debris into the street

BEAUFORT, S.C. (April 24, 2023) –  It’s that time of year!

You’re cleaning up yard debris – leaves, grass clippings, etc., –  and instead of bagging them for pickup, you’re blowing them, or sweeping them, into the street or the stormwater ditch next to your home.

Please don’t do that! 

Yard waste collects in ditches and in the street, and from there clogs drains. Those clogged drains lead to street and yard flooding during heavy rains. 

Please, bag your lawn clippings and leaves, and make sure they don’t end up in the ditch or in the street. And if you do see debris in the street, please take a minute to pick it up. (Note: Capital Waste Services, which provides trash, recycling and yard debris pickup services for the City of Beaufort, explains how to prepare yard debris for pickup. Please go to its page here:

If you notice any major blockages of stormwater drains or ditches, please notify Beaufort Public Works Department at 843-525-7054.
