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.

Permits for overnight, long-term storage for non-motorized, self-propelled vessels will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis to full-time and part-time residents at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017, at Town Hall. 

Residents wishing to apply for one of the 12 permits at Grayden Paul Park or one of the 33 permits at Fishermen’s Park should bring proof of residency such as a property tax bill or utility bill. The nontransferable and nonrefundable $25 fee can be paid for at that time with cash or check. 

Permits are valid for 364 days following issuance and are limited to one per resident with a maximum of two permits issued annually per household. 

If an applicant is unable to appear in person, they may send an authorized representative who will need to present written and signed authorization from the applicant. This proxy will only be issued the one permit for the person they are representing; the person cannot obtain a permit as a proxy and a permit for their own use. 

Those who do not renew their permit have seven days from Feb. 1 to remove their boat. Non-permitted vessels left overnight after the seven days shall be subject to removal by the Town.
