The Charleston Commission, and city staff, will once again be assisting residents in a cleanup, fix-up effort this fall.

The city will rent a large bin for the collection of yard cuttings and debris, as well as small household items being discarded. This collection is tentatively scheduled for the final week of September, or first week of October, depending on when the trash bin can be reserved.

The city provided a bin in the spring, but officials were disappointed by abuse from a few individuals who discarded several large items and filled it up in a very short time.

They pointed out Tuesday that this fall collection will be more severely supervised, so more residents can discard unwanted articles and yard cleanup.

More information on the dates and times for the fall collection will be available later.
