The annual home cleanup and Amnesty day provides North Myrtle Beach residents with an opportunity to clean out their closets, attics, garages, and sheds.
During the event, residents may discard unwanted items including: appliances, electronics, furniture, oil, old tires, paint, pesticides, TVs, and more. No construction debris or medical waste will be accepted.
Document shredding will be onsite for the duration of the event. Maximum limit of three bags or boxes of documents/paper (no combustibles, no metals, no glass) per household.
Cleaning out closets, attics, garages, and sheds can not only help declutter living spaces but also provide opportunities for recycling, repurposing, and donating unused items.
To maximize the impact of this Amnesty day opportunity, here are a few suggestions:
1. The Date is November 4th: North Myrtle Beach residents have a chance to prepare and participate. This event is being promoted through local newspapers, websites, social media platforms, or community bulletin boards.
2. Provide collection points: The town has designated the NMB Transfer Station on 1220 2nd Avenue South within the North Myrtle Beach area where residents can drop off their items. The city has arranged for appropriate containers and bins for different types of items, such as clothes, electronics, household goods, and recyclables on this Amnesty day.
3. This partnership can ensure that reusable items find new homes, while recyclables are properly disposed of.
4. North Myrtle Beach encourages residents to recycle materials whenever possible. Connect with the city on where you can responsibly dispose of hazardous waste, electronic waste, batteries, and other items that require special handling.
5. Share your success stories online: Once the cleanup event is over, share your success stories with the city and on social media.
Remember, safety should always be a priority during Amnesty day.
