Important Updates

Staff is currently working through logistics with Waste Industries regarding the company’s taking over trash and recycling collection for the Town of Beaufort. In an effort to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible, it has been decided to wait until April before transferring that service completely to Waste Industries. A firm date will be announced in mid-March. In the meantime, Public Works will continue to collect household waste on Mondays, recycling on Tuesdays and yard and bulk items on Wednesdays. We will continue to seek public input in the coming weeks. Please email any concerns, questions or suggestions to Public Information Officer Jennifer Allen at

Talk Trash” with a representative from Waste Industries will be held 4-6 p.m. Feb. 22 in the Train Depot, 614 Broad St. Citizens are encouraged to come and ask any questions they have about the new trash collection process. More dates will be announced for March.

Hold a Special Event


The Town of Beaufort welcomes and encourages Special Events because they are an important part of our citizen's quality of life, build a sense of community and create an environment that fosters civic pride.

A Special Event is any non-routine activity within the Town that brings together a large number of people that will significantly impact the surrounding community, involve the increased use of Town services and require additional planning, preparedness and mitigation efforts of the local emergency response and public safety agencies.

Special events may include, but are not limited to the following event types: festivals, carnivals, marches, demonstrations, parades, walks, block/street parties and sport tournaments.

If your event will require a waiver for the use and consumption of alcoholic beverage on public property, the request will have to be presented to the Board of Commissioners before the event. They meet at 6 p.m. the second Monday of the month in the Train Depot, 614 Broad St. Your application will need to be to the Town Clerk, Jennifer Allen at, no later than the prior Monday.
