Attention all islanders! Whether you are an owner, guest of an owner, paying guest, or staff personnel, we all have one thing in common – we are passionate about Dewees Island and its unique environment and wildlife. In order to conserve the environment, it is important for us to work together and practice good conservation habits, such as recycling.
Some of you may not be aware, but if a recycling container is not properly sorted and has household garbage mixed with recyclables (see photo below), the entire dumpster is considered garbage.
Photo was taken this week. Let’s take some pride and change our habits!
To ensure that each and every recycling container is accepted by Charleston County, we have provided you with photos to remind all of us how to properly sort our recycling and waste.
You can find these helpful photos in the following areas:
2. At the recycling area near Public Works
3. On our website
4. At your home! – Early next week, each house will receive a copy of our flyer to put on the fridge or recycling area as a guideline when sorting recycling.
Again, we thank you in advance for your help to support our recycling efforts. Recycling helps preserve our environment and ultimately supports the environmental philosophy of Dewees Island! Keep Dewees Wild Forever!

Dear Dewees Island Property Owners,
I am hopeful we will have a peaceful season this year, but we must always be prepared as we enter the hurricane season.
Each year, Dewees Island POA Inc. and Dewees Utility Corporation update their Disaster Preparedness Plan for the hurricane season. It is very important for you to review the plan and develop your own hurricane preparation and readiness plan. The Dewees Plan reflects the Storm Alert levels of Charleston County. The County will be handling hurricane emergencies more cautiously than they did in the past. Dewees will need to evacuate early to allow time for us to synchronize with the Emergency Plans of the County. It is important for you to familiarize yourself with the County’s evacuation routes and plan accordingly.
In the case of a hurricane we will fly a hurricane flag at the Landings Building to notify you that we are at the OPCON 3, alert level. We will use our emergency telephone system and email notifications to alert residents and guests on the Island.
We will contact the email addresses from the Dewees Island POA website Owner Address Book, so please make sure you have ALL current contact information noted in the Address Book. If you need to update your contact information with the POA, please contact Catherine at email@example.com
When Charleston County is at alert level OPCON 4, you will need to immediately prepare and secure homes and property for a hurricane. To protect your property from a potential hurricane, arrange for someone now to help if you are unable to attend to your home during hurricane season.
Register now for IOP re-entry passes. Passes are available at IOP City Hall, 30 J.C. Long Boulevard, Isle of Palms SC, 29451, 843-886-6522, throughout the year. Decals will NOT be issued within eighteen (18) hours of landfall. You must get new decals every five (5) years. Previous decals will be void.
Again, please be sure to take the time to review the Disaster Preparedness Plan with your family members.
Dewees Island POA
