STORMWATER MANAGEMENT TIP
Remember To Recycle Your Oyster Shells: Oysters are a crucial part of our Lowcountry ecosystem. Recycling oyster shells helps provide suitable habitats for new oysters to grow, but it must be done the correct way.
Oyster Shell Recycling
DO:

✅ Separate shells from the trash. Shells mixed with the trash are not suitable for recycling. Provide separate containers for shells.

Keep shells in a porous container to reduce odor.

Bring your shells to the nearest shell recycling center.
 
DON'T:

Put live oysters in South Carolina waters. If the oysters you purchased were harvested outside of South Carolina, it is illegal to place them in South Carolina waters. Placing imported oysters in our waters can create public health problems and may harm local oysters or other animals.

Put freshly shucked shells in South Carolina waters. To avoid contamination, shells should be dried for 6 months.
