The Town of Kiawah Island provides a comprehensive solid waste program for property owners. This service includes garbage, recycling and yard debris collection. All 35 gallon recycling carts must be placed curbside or at the backdoor, depending on your service type, each Wednesday. Recycling is now single stream meaning that all recyclable materials can be placed in one container without sorting. This makes it easier and less time consuming for residents to recycle.
