Garage and Yard Sale Permits in the City of Orangeburg

If you plan to host a garage or yard sale within the city limits of Orangeburg, it's essential to obtain a yard sale permit from City Hall. Here's what you need to know:

Permit Fee: The permit fee is $5.00 per day.

Annual Limit: There is a limit of two yard sales allowed per location within a calendar year.

Displaying the Permit: Once you obtain the permit, it must be clearly posted at the site of the sale. Failure to do so may result in tickets issued by the Department of Public Safety for those who do not possess a valid permit.

Compliance with Zoning Ordinance: It's important to note that the City's Zoning Ordinance strictly prohibits the placement of signs, posters, and advertisements in the public right of way. This includes utility poles, which are considered part of the public right of way.

Sign Removal: Any signs, posters, or advertisements placed in the right of way will be promptly removed. Individuals responsible for the placement of such items may face fines for violating the City's Zoning Ordinance, as well as public littering regulations.
