On average, the typical American creates more than four pounds of waste every day. That figure doesn't include the items in your home that need to be hauled away but remain for whatever reason. The reality is most South Carolina residents have tons of junk lying around that they don't need. Unfortunately, most of us don't have the time or patience to get rid of these items in an efficient, eco-friendly way. That's where Labor Bros junk removal swoops in to save the day.

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 Myrtle 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. 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. 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.
With new technology and features debuting every other day, it's no surprise that we haul away old TVs every day. 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. Once our team removes your old TV from your home or business, we'll make sure your TV is disposed of in an eco-friendly manner.
In addition to our junk removal services, Labor Bros also offers the highest quality general labor services in South Carolina.

We save you time, money, and the possibility of injuring yourself or your friends.
If you own a home, you probably know how frustrating it can be to keep up with odd jobs around the house.

And that, in a nutshell, is why we founded Labor Bros - to give good people like you the chance to keep their homes looking great, inside and out. Here are just a few of the most common general labor jobs we complete for homeowners in South Carolina:

When you want it done right, it's time to call the Labor Bros. 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! Our general labor techs have cleaned up dozens if not hundreds of yards, and they can help you too. We make yard debris cleanup easy by taking everything: limbs, leaves, grass clippings, wood chips, and more. Simply click or call, and we'll haul it all!

Last week, MyrtleBeachSC News came out with a video describing the near future for Horry County. Almost 8,000 Horry County residents watched. A few, local political insiders scoffed.
While we did not name names then, key players in this billion dollar “take over effort” are named today.
Latest Horry County News in your inbox
He held the post of Rector for the University of Virginia Board of Trustees. In 2017, he was listed as the 2nd most powerful man in Richmond, Va.
His name is William Goodwin Jr. He has ties to the Coastal [Carolina] Educational Foundation. He is a large property owner in Kiawah Island and a major player in tourism in Hilton Head and Kiawah.
While you may not recognize the name, as we will explain, his fingerprints have quietly been behind the major land deals in Horry County for more than the past 20 years.
As Richmond’s style weekly featured: While we can’t exactly peek at his bank account, it’s long been rumored Bill Goodwin is the metro area’s lone billionaire. Regardless, Goodwin wields enormous behind-the-scenes clout as a respected businessman and noted philanthropist. He currently leads Go Virginia’s newly-created, 25-member Richmond regional council, which will recommend state-funded grants for local economic development collaborations between business, higher education and government. Goodwin recently stepped down from the University of Virginia’s board of visitors after serving two years as rector, a position formerly held by Dominion Energy’s Tom Farrell, with whom Goodwin is currently serving on the search committee for a new Richmond school superintendent. Goodwin and his wife, Alice, have donated in more than $140 million to education and cancer research, including $40 million in donations to Virginia Commonwealth University. In the last couple years they’ve pledged to donate $150 million in seed money for an independent Richmond children’s hospital, though that effort appears stalled for now. Goodwin’s holdings include Richmond’s historic Jefferson Hotel, the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, a Kiawah Island, South Carolina, luxury golf resort and the Sea Pines Resort in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
In January 2018, a $12.9 million Horry County land purchase was covered by all local media: Horry County is buying over 3,700 acres on International Drive for $12.9 million.
Said Horry County Council Chairman Mark Lazarus, at the time, “It’s going to be one of the biggest things we’ve seen happen in our area when it comes to conservation. To say the least, the people of Carolina Forest are going to be extremely pleased.”
The man most pleased with the deal, however, was William Goodwin Jr. As you will see, he purchased the land for pennies and sold it for $12.9 million.
Lazarus was the deal maker in this effort. Our report here will show that Lazarus has been the key engineer in all things connected to a future tourism game changer.
We certainly can’t take credit here. The files below were sent to us electronically by a concerned local. We did our due diligence, however, and this report is spot on.
What if I told you that there is a billionaire in Virginia who bought 7500 acres of swamp land in Horry County for less than $6.5 million?
Then he sold less than 3800 of those acres for a total of $12,160,790.00.
You would probably think that guy must be a Hell of a salesman,huh?
What if I told you that YOU paid him more than $12 million for those 3800 acres of swamp land?
The Billionaire paid less than $1000 per acre when he bought it, but YOU paid just under $3000.00 per acre to buy if from him. If you live in the State of South Carolina, YOU paid $1.1 million for less than 34 acres of Mr. Billionaire’s swamp land.
Mr. Billionaire paid a grand total of $11,658.50 for those 33.31 acres, at a rate of $350.00 per acre.
What if I told you that that same billionaire did the same thing before in Richland County?

I am a concerned South Carolina citizen. That is all you need to know. My name, my gender, my age, my political beliefs, my profession, and any other personal information is irrelevant to what I have to say. I am an independent voter with no affiliation with any political party. I am doing this for one reason: to point out potential corruption and shine a light to scatter the cockroaches.
I choose this blog site because, at least in Horry County, it is the only site that is unafraid to expose the power players in Myrtle Beach and their corruption.
I do not agree with a lot of the politics promoted on this site, but that doesn’t matter. I know that David Hucks will not refuse to print this out of cowardice or complicity with the corruptors, nor will he run to the power brokers and tell them what is coming.
I have been here for 46 years. In that time, I have seen the corruption first hand over and over again. I have a lawyer friend in Columbia. We were talking about just one of the examples of open corruption in Horry County (Alan Clemmons making deals to become the City of Myrtle Beach Attorney) and he just laughed.
This is what he said to me:
“In my practice, I have discussed Horry County and Myrtle Beach with an agent of the DEA, three FBI agents, several state prosecutors, and a US Attorney. To a person, they all say Horry County is the most corrupt place in the Southeast, if not the entire country.”
Wow. One guy actually said they call it “Horror County.”
It made me start digging. Within 3 hours of casual internet searches, I was onto something. After a week of steady internet searching, I came up with the information included in this series of essays.
It only took one week to find this information on public websites. Could you imagine what a legitimate law enforcement officer could do with their ability to access bank records, tax records, and other non-public information?
Problem is, they won’t do it.
I wonder why that is?
These essays, if David continues to publish them, are about land deals in Horry. Land deals that stink to high heaven.
Land deals that smell like a buzzard belch, to be completelyhonest. It is a lot to process, so I broke them up into five parts.
This is the first part which just presents the premise for these articles and introduces the reader to me.
The second part is just historical background to set the stage for the shady land deals. The third part is about the land deals themselves.
The fourth part will take us to Little River and what appears to be a consolidation of land by a very small group of powerful people.
Let’s see if we can shake a few trees and see what falls out. What do you say?

South Carolina Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom made a $3.5 billion error in an annual financial report, and now it may cost him in his own bank account.
The House during budget discussions late Monday voted 104-7 to reduce Eckstrom’s pay to $1 to essentially strip him of his $151,000 salary.
The comptroller general salary would be restored if Eckstrom is replaced, said state Rep. Heather Bauer, D-Richland, who proposed the amendment.
“Due to his $3.5 billion whoopsie, Comptroller General Eckstrom must be held accountable,” Bauer said.
Pay for the comptroller general was increased in January to $151,000 from $92,000 as part of an effort to provide compensation to statewide elected officials that is competitive with other states.
Several more steps are still required in the state budgeting process before any change to the comptroller’s salary could become final. However, Monday’s move is another sign lawmakers have lost confidence in the state’s chief accountant.
Eckstrom, who was elected in 2002, in February acknowledged his office had for a decade had double counted cash sent to colleges and universities. The error eventually inflated to a $3.5 billion overstatement of the state’s cash balances in annual comprehensive financial reports.
State senators investigating the error have since said Eckstrom’s office under reported about $500 million held by the S.C. Department of Transportation and the college and universities overstatement was as large as $4 billion, bringing the total amount misstated to $4.5 billion.
The misstatement won’t affect the state’s budget discussions because money used assemble the spending plan is based on revenues projected to come into the state that haven’t been allocated by lawmakers, instead of money already sent to agencies by the Legislature.
As the state’s chief accountant and top fiscal watchdog, Eckstrom is in charge of running the state’s payroll, paying vendors, helping other agencies with the accounting system and assembling the state’s annual financial report.
The panel of Senate Finance Committee members is expected to release a set of recommendations on how to respond to the Eckstrom’s error.
Back in the House, a bipartisan group is calling for Eckstrom’s impeachment. Gov. Henry McMaster has since said lawmakers should resist the urge to impeach the comptroller general, who was reelected in November after running unopposed. McMaster said the decision should be left up to voters.
Eckstrom has said he has no plans to resign.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. —
There is no doubt that pollen is making an early appearance in South Carolina this year, and a picture of the yellow ocean in Myrtle Beach proves it once again.
Earlier this week, we showed a picture of an alligator in Moncks Corner covered in pollen and talked about the early allergy season.
And then we found this picture that Lakiesha Grainger took on Wednesday at the Springmaid Pier.
Ocean on Myrtle Beach covered in pollen
According to pollen.com the pollen forecast for the Myrtle Beach area is high for Thursday and Friday.
It was in the medium to high category when the picture was taken.
Tree pollen actually started showing up in January in our area. It was low, but just the presence of it that early is rare.

The tree pollen soared to high levels in February, with weed pollen even showing up months early from time to time.
Tree pollen usually shows up in March in our area and peaks in April.
Grass pollen starts peaking in May and June and weed pollen shows up at the end of July and typically peaks in September.
So if you are suffering from allergies, we are sorry to say this is just the beginning of the season.
Got allergies? SC doctors say allergy season came early, and could last longer than normal
Dr. Trip Johnstone, with Allergy Partners of the Upstate, says if this early start is any indicator of what the rest of allergy season will look like, you might need to stock up on tissues and medication now.
He also recommends the following:
"It probably means we're going to have a worse season," Johnson adds. "The Upstate area is pretty bad to begin with. It's not like we have a milder allergy season, so what that probably means is a more prolonged season than a short one."
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) — Myrtle Beach City Council members passed a first reading of their beach franchise agreement changes Tuesday, meaning it's likely beachgoers won't see any lifeguards pulling double duty between safety and concessions within the city this summer.The new agreement calls for one lifeguard to focus on safety, while another would be responsible for concessions, like renting umbrellas and chairs.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) — Myrtle Beach City Council members passed a first reading of their beach franchise agreement changes Tuesday, meaning it's likely beachgoers won't see any lifeguards pulling double duty between safety and concessions within the city this summer.
The new agreement calls for one lifeguard to focus on safety, while another would be responsible for concessions, like renting umbrellas and chairs. It requires an additional supervisor for every 10 lifeguards, and pushes their shifts an hour later, to run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
TOP STORY: Conway officials approve demolition of Whittemore Park Elementary; 1 building to be saved
Each service will have to place lifeguards based on how many people are in an area, the weather, and other beach conditions.
“I would definitely like to say 'thank you' to both franchisees to be willing and open to increase public safety," Myrtle Beach Councilman John Krajc said.
Because the city will require lifeguards to perform separate job duties, the city attorney said they'll waive the franchise fee this season.
And although this change would make beach rental companies hire additional staff, one local business said it's necessary.
"We all feel that it was something that needed to be done, you know the separation of lifeguard and attendant. The lifeguard needs to have the only job of water safety. So, yes, it is an additional expense, but we feel it's well-worth it in the interest of public safety," Nick Jackson, Co-owner of John's Beach Service, said.
Jackson said his business has kept lifeguards and renters separate for the past two years on their own, even without the new agreement.
He said all lifeguards and beach attendants would be CPR and lifeguard certified in the event of an emergency.
City of Myrtle Beach spokesperson Mark Kruea said the current system has been around since the 1960s, and the time has come to move towards a safer beach.
"I think the answer to why now is because the time has come to do it," Kruea said.
ABC15 asked Kruea if this change has anything to do with a multi-million dollar lawsuit.
SUGGESTED: Family awarded $20.7M in lawsuit against lifeguard company after man drowns
Kruea responded and said: "I think it's been a conversation that's been ongoing for a while. It's definitely a change and will require a change on the part of the beach service companies. The National Lifeguard crowd will not apparently certify lifeguards if they're renting things as well, so this should give lifeguard companies the ability to receive that national certification."
Last August a jury awarded the family of a Myrtle Beach drowning victim more than $20 million.
The victim's family alleged Lack's Beach Service, which is contracted with the city, was negligent and had lifeguards focused on selling beach equipment.
That private beach rental company has asked the court to reconsider the order, and the case remains active.
Council has two more readings before the new contract is approved.
