When it comes to junk removal in Mount Pleasant, 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.

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!

Walk through the doors of Palmetto Christian Academy and you will quickly discover why families are grateful to be a part of this vibrant learning community that is also deeply rooted in faith. It’s a feeling — one facilitated by staff, parents, students and community.
PCA is not only growing as a premium choice for parents, but it was also recently recognized as the area’s best private school — a recurring distinction that PCA has held since 2015.
“We are not just a school, but a place to grow — both spiritually and academically — in a nurturing Christian environment,” said PCA Headmaster J.D. Zubia. “We are celebrating our 30-year milestone throughout the current school year and have come a long way since our small beginnings.”
Those humble beginnings first took shape in the autumn of 1992 as a ministry of East Cooper Baptist Church. They opened with an enormous vision, but only a small staff of three teachers. The dream began with a group of 25 students, Kindergarten through fourth grade.
Over the next 10 years, enrollment grew to surpass 200, and grade levels were expanded through high school. In 2009, PCA’s first graduating class crossed the stage. All the while, PCA was offering more opportunities for Lowcountry families to become a part.
Though fostered in faith, PCA also provides opportunities for advanced placement and dual credit courses throughout core subjects. Graduates are poised to pursue diverse fields such as medicine, law, education, engineering, missions, ministry, computer science, accounting and business.
“Part of our vision is to create lifelong learners who do all things with excellence,” said Darla Rourk, PCA’s director of marketing and communication. “Exceptional academics, athletics, arts, small classes and talented faculty help our students become critical thinkers and responsible members of a global community.”
That community is growing across the U.S. Based on a 2022 study by Raleigh nonprofit executive search firm DickersonBakker, interest in Christian schools is surging in every region. That’s true in this area as well. If you walk the PCA campus today, you will see a new student life center featuring a state-of-the-art technology lab, fully-equipped science labs, classrooms for math and Bible and a gymnasium that seats more than 1,000 fans.
You will also observe students excited about bright futures and current goals. You might even get to meet school nurses Ashli Rushing and Tricia Turner, who finished first and second respectively in a near dead-even heat for Best School Nurse in Mount Pleasant Magazine’s Best Of reader voting. Above all, you will begin to understand why PCA is regarded by many as one of the Lowcountry’s best schools — public or private.
“I am thrilled that we were able to celebrate 30 years of Christian education, and I really believe that God is going to bless this ministry as we continue to be good stewards and faithful to his calling,” Zubia said. “Putting God first is what is distinctive about a PCA education. And I think we are going to be here as long as He needs us to impact the culture.”

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — SC Senate bill 425 would allow retailers to sell alcohol curbside or through delivery, including beer and wine.
ABC News 4 asked a local liquor store owner what he thought about the bill.
POLL: Should alcohol be available through curbside pickup and delivery in SC?
Bill Colven has owned O'Neill spirits in Mount Pleasant for seven years.
"There is lots of tourism in the area. We bring in out-of-towners who shop in-store. It's a great environment. People come in friendly, happy come into a liquor store," said Bill Colven, Owner of O'Neill spirits Mount Pleasant
Lowcountry Senator Sandy Senn is one of the bill's sponsors. She said it ties back to the early days of the pandemic.
SC bill proposes to allow retailers to sell alcohol curbside or delivery. (WCIV)
"During COVID, many people were uncomfortable getting out and going to grocery stores and liquor stores. They preferred curbside service a lot, and that went on during COVID. People decided they would like to see it continue," said Senator Senn.
Colven said he is 50/50 on the Senate Bill.
The curbside part said he supports it because they would serve customers curbside during the pandemic.
"We would get calls ahead of time to ask if we would be able to do that. We were able to process credit cards over the phone. Of course, when they show up, (we would) check the ID and make sure it's legal," said Colven.

For the delivery option, he wants to know a bit more.
Culven said third parties have proven to work in other states through apps like Drizly.
But, when it comes to if his store would do delivery...
"Delivery is kind of a slippery slope for me. There are a lot of challenges that could bring businesses; we are a small family-run business. I want to see how my numbers would look and if it makes sense economically," he said.

Senator Senn said if the bill passes, retailers would have a separate license. And it would be an option, not a requirement.
"There’s a separate provision for ABC/SLED to come up with a license. They could get in order to something need risk/loss if they (retailers) do something improper. Also, they would have to carry a 1 million dollars worth of liability insurance," said Senator Senn.
The most important thing to Senator Senn and Colven: is that the current rules on alcohol sales remain intact.
"The license has to be checked. Obviously, a retailer could lose their license in a heartbeat (if they don't follow the laws)," said Senator Senn.
The bill now goes to the full Senate; if it passes there, it will head to the house.

CALHOUN COUNTY, S.C. — The Fort Motte community was established in 1875, at the tail end of the Reconstruction era. This small village in Calhoun County has a rich history with a historic Black presence, and one descendant is working to make sure it's not forgotten.
“We should not be waiting for other people to tell our story," said community historian Jackie Whitmore.
Whitmore's ancestors have lived in the community for generations.
“I, like a lot of other people was not born here, was not raised here, so I’m a descendant of this community. So being a descendant of this community, I think it’s important and it’s significant to do just that, to preserve the story and the legacy of our people as it relates to this community," said Whitmore.
In July, he opened a display with photographs, news clippings, and other artifacts donated from local community members to chronicle their stories. With the help of a group of descendants of the Lang Syne Plantation known as the United Family Reunion, there are now five historical markers in the community memorializing a historic black church and cemeteries.
The sites include Oakland Cemetery, Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, Lang Syne Cemetery, Good Samaritan Cemetery, and True Blue Cemetery.
Mt. Pleasant was the first church organized by African Americans in the community. The Mt. Pleasant School educated black students from the 1870s to the 1920s after the Civil War.
“Trying to get documentation as they state, to verify the information that you have in the historical marker erected. The problem with that is there is very little to none for African Americans so the process of having a historical marker erected is cumbersome," said Whitmore.
He says he relied heavily on oral history and worked with the state department of archives and history through the process. During the process, Whitmore learned about the contributions of Fort Motte native Senator Samuel L. Duncan and Representative Edward Cain who represented Orangeburg County during the Reconstruction Era. Two memorial stones are now dedicated in their honor at the Lang Syne Cemetery and Senator Darrell Jackson passed a resolution in February to recognize their efforts on the state level.
Now, Whitmore is passing on the stories he's learned to the next generation.
“I want to impress other communities to do the same thing. Tell your own story.”
