BEAUFORT, S.C. (Dec. 13, 2022) – The City of Beaufort is changing the method it uses to bill residents for trash and recycling services.

Beginning in January, Beaufort Jasper Water & Sewer Authority will no longer bill for those services. The City of Beaufort currently contracts with BJWSA to bill customers for trash services monthly. That fee was $20 a month. So beginning in January, Beaufort residents will see their water/sewer bills decrease by $20.

The City of Beaufort will now work with Beaufort County to add a solid waste fee to its property tax bill. The fee will be added to next year’s property tax bill, so residents will pay the fee retroactively. The fee will be established with the budget that will be approved for the new fiscal year beginning July 1, 2023.

Capital Waste Services is the vendor that provides the trash, recycling, and yard debris services for the City of Beaufort residents. It also provides free trash and recycling bins to each residence. Bulk and white goods pickups are also provided for City residents, free of charge. In other parts of Beaufort County, residents are charged extra for these services.
