Christmas is not only a time to receive but to give. I understand that households accumulated a large amount of trash on Christmas day and wanted to do something special to help clear your house of trash and show our appreciation during these uncertain times.
With that in mind, I have decided to open seven recycling centers, one in each district on Christmas Day from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. County team members have graciously agreed to volunteer their time to assist me in this endeavor.
Although we cannot open all recycling centers, we will open the following locations from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. on Christmas Day.
Public Works Recycling Center-190 County Camp Road, Kingstree
St. Lawrence Recycling Center-5421 US Highway 521, Salters
Hemingway Recycling Center-81 Spring Pond Road, Hemingway
Central Recycling Center-885 F. Guerry Road, Kingstree
Greeleyville Recycling Center-8 Pine Street, Greeleyville
Please remember that this is a special opening!
Tiffany Cooks, Williamsburg County Supervisor
Our main goal is provide citizens a convenient way of recycling and solid waste collection. One of the highest priorities in recent years in Williamsburg County has been the construction and development of 20 recycling sites to replace the old ’green boxes’ as well as the establishment of a serious recycling effort.
The Solid Waste department operates 4 roll-off trucks to maintain solid waste collection at the recycling centers.
Recycling Program Grant Assistance
South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling has helped us structure our recycling programs with grant assistance.
County Council is very mindful that the county landfill is rapidly filling, and approaching its scheduled closure date.
