What Are the Most Common Junk Removal Items?
Here at Labor Bros, we've hauled away an incredible amount of junk since we opened our doors. Whether it's the hundreds of unsightly, heavy mattresses or old, unusable TVs, our crew has hauled some serious junk over the years. For each truckload of junk that we remove from a home or business, we work hard to donate applicable items and recycle others, to give back to the community and keep it clean.
When it comes to junk removal in Hilton Head Island, SC, here are some of the most common items we remove:
Even the best mattresses will need to be replaced with enough time. Over the years, your mattress will begin to break down, causing you more pain than pleasure when your head hits the pillow. When your quality of sleep is affected, so too is your day-to-day life and wellbeing. To make matters worse, your old mattress is a haven for dead skin cells, hair, and even bugs. When it gets to this point, it's time to get rid of your mattress. Unfortunately, that can be easier said than done, especially if you're working 40 hours a week and must balance a family too. Luckily, the Labor Bros can remove your old mattress quicker than it takes you to snooze on a Sunday afternoon.
Labor Bros Pro Tip: Mattress parts like steel springs, wooden frames, and coils can often be donated or recycled. Our team is happy to handle this part of the junk removal process, so you don't have to!
If you plan on upgrading your kitchen, chances are you will need to update your old fridge too. Refrigerators are notorious for being big, clunky, hazardous appliances to remove. Most folks don't want to deal with the lengthy process of removing the appliance and disposing of it safely. That's where the Labor Bros come in! Whether you have a regular-sized fridge at your home or several large chest freezers at your business, the Labor Bros are here to haul them away today.
Labor Bros Pro Tip: Remember, many refrigerators and freezers have harmful chemicals that need to be disposed of properly. The Labor Bros always take these hazards into account, so you don't risk your health.

Flat Screen TVs

Whether you're moving to a new home or just want a new TV, we can remove your old flat screen quickly and safely. Our customers choose the Labor Bros for their TV removal not just because we're fast and effective, but because many modern TVs contain hazardous materials.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WTOC) - The Town of Hilton Head Island issued a statement regarding the property dispute between the developer of Bailey’s Cove and Josephine Wright.
The Town of Hilton Head said in a statement that it will not issue a Certificate of Compliance or building permits until the dispute is resolved.
You can read the full statement below:
The Town of Hilton Head Island has received a number of questions from media outlets regarding action taken by the Town related to the property dispute between the developer of Bailey’s Cove and Josephine Wright.
We have notified the parties that, consistent with our code, the Town will not issue a Certificate of Compliance or building permits until this matter has been resolved.
The Town is following its standard process for approval of the various phases of a development such as Bailey’s Cove. This process involves multiple steps that must be completed in succession to move through the development process. According to Shawn Colin, Assistant Town Manager for Community Development, who serves as the Town’s Land Management Ordinance (LMO) Official, a Certificate of Compliance, is required for the developer to obtain building permits and cannot be issued until the property dispute has been resolved. Resolution of this issue is necessary for the subdivision plat to be approved and stamped.
A letter from Mr. Colin outlining the above was provided to the applicant’s agent on July 31 as confirmation of the Town’s position.
“As Town Manager, I would like to publicly address the recent private land dispute that has captured community attention. Our Town’s strength is in our shared values and our commitment to each other,” said Marc Orlando. “I understand the emotions and concerns surrounding this issue and I encourage the developer to work with Mrs. Wright to resolve it. I know that Town staff is working with the developer to bring this to timely resolution.”

With summer’s end just around the corner, it’s important to fill the remainder of your time with lasting memories and ways to make the most of the warm, sunny weather.
In order to make sure you’ve at least experienced the best things to do on the island, Tripadvisor released its list of the 2023 top attractions to do in Hilton Head.
First on the list was Coligny Beach. Accompanied by Coligny Plaza, this area on the island’s south end is a great place to spend the day with free parking, a shopping center, restaurants and miles of white sand beaches. Coligny Beach Park on its own has a splash pad, restrooms, outdoor showers, seating, free parking and more.
Coligny Beach received Tripadvisor’s “2023 Best of the Best” award and has over 4,000 reviews on the popular travel site.
The beach is located at 1 Coligny Circle.
Are you over the age of 21? Head on over to Hilton Head Distillery, which landed second on the list, and is the island’s only distillery and craft spirits locale. The distillery offers a unique experience for guests with a wide variety of activities such as the opportunity to engage in a hands-on mixology experience, daily behind-the-scenes tours, tastings, signature cocktail classes and a bottle shop.
Such options are a much-talked-about affair among adults and ranked as a ‘must-do’ for many adult parties or gatherings. The distillery can be found at 14 Cardinal Road, Hilton Head Island, SC 29926.
Hilton Head Distillery also won Tripadvisor’s “2023 Travelers’ Choice Award.”

The Town of Hilton Head Island ‘s website shows several different interactive or printable map options for the many bike trails that the island has to offer.

Are SC bobcats dangerous? Here’s what to know and where they live

Have you heard distant screams echoing throughout the night?
It might be a bobcat.
Bobcats, also known as the red lynx or the bay lynx, are part of the lynx family and can easily be distinguished by their short, bobbed tail.
Although the feline typically goes unseen in more populated areas due to its generally shy and solitary character, bobcats inhabit the stretch of South Carolina’s coastal plain and can be found in many different habitats such as swamps, mountainous regions and forests with thick brush.
The fur on a bobcat can range between appearing as grayish to reddish-brown, donning widespread black spots, dark ears with white, tufted tips and a tail tipped with black above and white fur.
This lynx species typically weighs between 15-40 pounds, with males generally being heavier than females.
Bobcats are opportunistic hunters that prey on a variety of animals such as mice, rats, squirrels, moles, fish, birds, rabbits, reptiles and occasionally white-tailed deer, which is South Carolina’s state animal.
Lynx rufus have been known to prey on nearby white-tailed deer during the fawning and hunting seasons, at which times they find young, wounded or crippled deer for easy prey, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources states.
Domestic animals such as dogs, goats and sometimes cats left in backyards or around your property can also fall prey to the hungry felines.
Bobcats prepare to stalk and ambush their prey, pouncing when an ideal animal comes near with their pursuit rarely extending more than 60 feet.
Bobcats are polygamous mammals that begin breeding after they have reached one year of age and will breed in the late winter and early spring, but mostly occurring between December through May.
Female bobcats will use an area of rocky ledges as a natural den. However, they may also be located in rock crevices, caves, brush piles or in hollow trees, stumps, or logs, according to Mass.gov. Females may even repeatedly use the same den sites for several years in a row.
They undergo a 62-day gestation period where afterward females will give birth to two to four kittens. These kittens will open their eyes after 10 days, and by four weeks, will begin exploring their surroundings and are weaned from nursing by seven to eight weeks, SCDNR states.
Male bobcats do not participate in raising the young, as that responsibility solely lies on the female.
Luckily, bobcats tend to avoid humans, which makes them pretty harmless most of the time. However, attacks have occurred as a result of unhealthy or territorial bobcats.
“Perhaps you have seen a bobcat in your neighborhood. Rest assured, bobcats do not attack people. In fact, bobcat attacks are virtually unknown; however, no one should ever attempt to touch or handle a wild bobcat or her kittens,” Kathy Milacek said through the Texas city of The Colony Department of Animal Services’ website.
If a bobcat does try to attack you, do what you can to defend yourself and seek immediate medical treatment for rabies or other diseases if you receive any bites, scratches or other injuries.

Editorial Roundup: South Carolina

Post and Courier. July 29, 2023.
Editorial: South Carolina needs to get serious about new wetlands protection
Two significant recent events should work together to push the issue of protecting South Carolina’s isolated wetlands toward the top of lawmakers’ agendas for the coming year.
The first is the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency that held that only wetlands connected to other surface waters are regulated under the federal Clean Water Act. That limits federal jurisdiction to areas with, in the ruling’s words, a “continuous surface water connection with a larger body of water.” While many in the environmental community have expressed concerns that the ruling — and the diminution of federal protection — will endanger more wetlands with development, that does not have to be the case.
States are free to step in and enact their own regulations to protect isolated wetlands, and we would urge S.C. lawmakers to do just that. Our state’s coastal plain has several Carolina Bays, isolated wetland features now apparently unprotected by the Clean Water Act. These unique and somewhat mysterious areas offer important habitat to unique birds and plants, and they also act as filters, improving regional water quality. One has been made into Woods Bay State Park in southwestern Florence County.
But Carolina Bays are far from the only sort of isolated wetlands left unprotected by the high court’s May ruling, which arrived at a moment when we are appreciating wetlands even more, not only for their contribution to biodiversity and water quality but also for their ability to limit flooding.
That’s where the other major development comes in: the June 29 release of South Carolina’s Strategic Statewide Resilience and Risk Reduction Plan, which recognizes the new realities regarding both flood-prone landscapes and our shifting regulatory landscape.
“The (Sackett) decision puts some of South Carolina’s unique isolated wetlands features such as Carolina Bays at risk of unregulated development,” the plan says in one of its recommendations: “Isolated wetlands, such as Carolina Bays, offer habitat and flood mitigation in South Carolina. A majority are in the coastal zone where populations are increasing and therefore at an increased risk of loss to development. New state legislation should be enacted to regulate the alteration of these unique systems to reduce the potential loss of function.”
This might not be the most significant of the plan’s many recommendations, but it could represent some of the lower-hanging fruit. In a similar vein, the plan also recommends maintaining natural protection against flooding by prioritizing conservation work in areas known to help with absorbing heavy rainfalls and swollen rivers. The plan notes that the South Carolina Office of Resilience has public and private databases “identifying areas where floodwaters are expected, where wetlands can help absorb excess water, and those areas where water is most likely to infiltrate the ground as opposed to creating excess runoff. Protecting these areas may help attenuate the impact that future development has.”
While conservation work is vital for many reasons, an increased focus on protecting landscapes, particularly wetlands, will help lessen future flood risk.
Many environmentalists fear the new Supreme Court precedent will lead to further damaging decisions because many believe the notion of an isolated wetland is an oxymoron, since we know relatively little about how water is connected underground. Also, some lands are wet only certain times of the year, and it’s unclear which ones still will face review under the Clean Water Act, the goal of which is no net loss of our nation’s wetlands.
We share their concerns and urge state lawmakers to address them by acting next year to adopt new state-level protections. Many lawmakers bristle at federal intervention in areas where they believe state government could handle things better; this wetlands issue represents a chance for them to prove we can do better. But we’ll only succeed if they act.
