When it comes to junk removal in Folly Beach, 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.

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. Once these materials have been dealt with, our junk removal experts will either donate your unwanted fridge or haul it to the appropriate recycling facility.

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.

Our team will not only remove the junk from your garage - we'll clean your garage afterward, so it looks and feels like it was brand new.
Cleaning up your yard debris can be a real pain in the butt. You need the right clothes to protect your legs and arms, gloves for your hands, possibly a back brace, and a lot of patience. After you're done, you're bound to need a shower and a long break. With all that in mind, it's no wonder why so many South Carolina residents call the Labor Bros for yard debris removal!

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - Folly Beach received a significant amount of federal funding for emergency renourishment following beach damage from Hurricane Ian.
The September storm washed away sand dunes and caused erosion to take away parts of the beach.
The $27 million of funding will work to get the beach back to normal with sand replacement.
“This is not a full renourishment, but it does allow us to get a little more beach back in place for the protection of infrastructure and recreation,” Folly Beach Mayor Tim Goodwin said.
Around 900,000 cubic yards or 90,000 dump trucks of sand, will be replaced, and the city plans to use sand from the Folly River.
“That kind of does two things,” Goodwin said. “It helps us refurbish the beach with beach sand that just kind of washes around in the river, and it kind of opens up the river for the boaters, gets rid of some sand bars.”
The mayor believes beachgoers will be excited about the project, but they are not the only ones who will benefit.
Safety is a concern when the beach is in its current state.
“A lot of people don’t understand but especially in medical emergencies, we have a lot of equipment to carry, so it’s helpful when we can bring that one a cart or a four-wheeler, and with a small beach that’s impacted by the storm, it makes it pretty difficult or impossible to do, so getting this sand is a huge help for us,” the City of Folly Beach Director of Public Safety Andrew Gilreath said.
The sand is also crucial for those who rely on the beach for business.
“Just makes the beach so much deeper, so much more room for everybody, everybody’s not shoulder to shoulder stuffed on the beach, so once we get that new beach it’ll be glory days for us,” Sun & Ski Beach Service Owner Andy Pracht said.
The project most likely will not get underway till after the busy season.
“Everybody just has to work together to get through the summer,” Pracht said. “It’s going to be crowded. It kind of is what it is. Hopefully, we could have a new beach by this summer but we’re not going to. So, if we have one by next summer that would be awesome.”
City officials say this will be the first emergency renourishment Folly has needed since 2018.
They say It will be a few months before a timeline is laid out for the project.
A contract should be awarded in late summer/early fall and construction will start shortly after.

Charleston County Parks and Recreation Officials say they look forward to formally celebrating the Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier Wednesday.
FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston County Parks and Recreation Officials say they look forward to formally celebrating the Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier Wednesday.
The pier will be dedicated at 10 a.m. with a ceremonial cast of fishing lines following a quiet opening back in December.
Charleston County Parks and Recreation spokesperson Sarah Reynolds said the history of a pier in this location dates back to the 1930s.
Reynolds said Charleston County purchased the land in 1992 and built the “original” wooden pier, which opened in 1995. After it showed signs of deteriorating, officials closed that pier in 2020, tore it down and built a new one from scratch.
But Reynolds said they didn’t want the new pier to lose its original feel, so they decided to build it in the same footprint.
The structure is made from concrete, meaning it will last generations longer than the original, but the walkways, railings and fishing stations are all wooden.
“We knew it was so important to the Lowcountry and to so many visitors and people who have made memories on the pier with fishing and, I’ve heard so many stories of people getting engaged out there and going there after their weddings and stuff, so we knew it meant a lot to a lot of people. So we wanted it to be reminiscent and nostalgic of the previous wooden pier at the site,” Reynolds said.
The pier stretches 1,049 feet and is 25 feet wide and 22 feet above sea level. Charleston County Parks and Recreation says its amenities include a 7,500-sq.-ft. diamond-shaped platform at the end of the pier, beach access, accessible restrooms, showers, rod rentals, a gift and tackle shop and oceanfront dining at Pier 101 Restaurant & Bar.
She said the pier is being dedicated to Edwin S Taylor, a prominent member of their commission in the 1990s and an instrumental part of building the original wooden pier.
The new pier is being dedicated to Taylor once again along with honoring many others who played key roles in its construction.
She said the pier is an iconic landmark, and it is important to acknowledge people who have invested so much time into making the pier a reality.

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - Dozens of short-term rental property owners met Monday night on Folly Beach to discuss how to maintain both their property’s value and short-term rental license.
This comes after the months-long short-term rental discussion came to a close last month, officially capping the number of short-term rentals on Folly Beach at 800.
The owner of Folly Beach property management company “Folly’s Best Rentals,” and host of Monday’s meeting, Greg Hart, said the short-term rental cap will drive down property value and make Short-term rental licenses more valuable.
“My advice for those who have a license is to be sure to take care of it, because it’s worth its weight in gold,” Hart said.
Right now, the short-term rental cap is set at 800, and there are currently around 1,200 on the island. Hart said he believes the city will try to lower the number of short-term rental licenses.
He said he encourages property owners to pay attention to strikes on their property, and the short-term rental license renewal date itself. Other suggestions included contacting Folly Beach Officials, and supporting a state-wide bill that would make imposing short-term rental bans illegal.
One short-term rental owner, Randy Holton, said he’s going to keep a close eye on his own short-term rental license.
Holton said when he and his family bought the house thirty years ago, renting it was always part of their retirement plan.
“Now we are reaching retirement age, so we are very threatened by laws that come along and say, ‘no we can’t do that,’” Holton said.
A majority of people at Monday night’s discussion were short-term rental property owners who are against the short-term rental cap.
Live 5 News reached out to The Folly Beach Resident Association, a group that is openly in favor of the short-term rental cap, for a statement.
We at the Folly Beach Residents Association (FRA) were pleased to see the highest voter turnout of any election on the Island vote to retain our sense of community and quality of life by passing the Referendum to CAP Investment Short Term Rental licenses at 800. The City leadership team is now beginning the implementation process of updating ordinances and capturing this decision into implementable city rules and regulations and the FRA is partnering with the City however they need us to through this process. We’ve already heard of one positive shift so far... the City confirmed to us that there are more Long Term Rental licenses being requested.
The City of Folly Beach said they did not want to comment on Monday’s discussion at this time.

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCSC) - Cyclists, walkers and joggers going through James Island to Folly Beach are one step closer to what officials hope is safer and easier travel.
The Rethink Folly Road Complete Streets Initiative focuses on improving connectivity and reducing congestion on Folly Road.
The steering committee made up of officials from Charleston County, the city of Charleston, James Island and Folly Beach held their quarterly meeting Wednesday to go over where this project stands.
As far as the phase one update, Charleston County says we are seeing “the light at the end of the tunnel.”
The state’s department of transportation and health has officially approved the permits for phase one of Rethink Folly Road, according to a Charleston County official.
Phase one is the initial phase of the bike and pedestrian accommodation project, which includes mixed-use paths or lane markings, but construction cannot start just yet.
James Island Mayor Bill Woolsey says they are thinking of beach traffic and how this would impact construction if it were to start in the summer.
In addition to less traffic, these islanders could also see a beach shuttle connecting Folly Beach to James Island, sometime in the future. The town of James Island put out a survey on this to see if people would really use it.
“There is an interest if we can make the ride feasible,” Jenny Costa Honeycutt, Charleston County District 9 councilmember, said. “That is get out there in a way that makes it, encourages people to ride it instead of simply driving and waiting in traffic on their own.”
A survey that pulled in 400 responses from people on James Island, West Ashley and beyond says 77% of people would use a beach shuttle with 23% would not.
When asked if they would take a 10-minute ride in the shuttle in an alternative lane passing traffic, 86% said yes and 14% said no. When asked if they would take a 45-minute ride in the shuttle in the same lane of traffic, 19% said yes and 81% said no.
Katie Zimmerman, executive director of Charleston Moves, says this data could create transit opportunities in the future.
“I think the results are really telling and really useful,” Zimmerman said. “And its information we keep in the back of our minds proceeding forward.”
Charleston County says they are anticipating a 300-day construction timeline for phase one. There is not a set date of when that will start as of now.
