Bennettsville City Council unanimously approved the first reading of an amendment to the solid waste ordinance to eliminate picking up brown goods such as furniture, mattresses, and toilets at their Nov. 20 meeting.
The Public Works department will no longer pick up those items once the ordinance is approved on second reading at the January meeting.
The only items that will be picked up is yard debris and what is inside the green containers.
"If it doesn't fit in the green container, it needs to go to the dump," said Holly Swann.
Mayor Heath Harpe said the county council had recently issued a fee schedule so residents could take those items to the Red Hill convenience site.
Cost is $3 for upholstered furniture and mattresses; $3 per unit for electronics; $5 for TVs; and $3 for toilets.
