Solid Waste and Recycling

Colleton County Solid Waste is responsible for operating and maintaining the Colleton County Convenience Centers strategically located throughout the county for the disposal and recycling of household garbage.

This Office Does Not

  • Provide residential or commercial garbage collection services
  • Provide removal of dead animals.
  • Pay anyone for recyclables delivered to the Convenience Centers or Landfill.

When you visit a Colleton County Recycling/Convenience Center, you have the perfect opportunity to reduce the amount of trash that goes to the landfill. Separating the recyclables is a great way to start. Repurposing or donating is another great way to keep items out of the land fill. To help Colleton County residents with recycling, the county has 15 Recycling/Convenience Centers.

Residents may open an account at the landfill by providing a driver's license and mailing address. Commercial accounts may be opened by providing the firm information. In either case all waste for disposal must be waste generated in Colleton County, and there must be no current amount due when the account is opened. 

The Colleton County Council establishes fees on an annual basis for the Colleton County Solid Waste Division with the approval of the Annual Budget ordinance. Tipping fees for disposal of Residential waste exceeding the 500-lb per month limit shall be calculated based on the County’s cost in tipping fees.

For any other questions please contact Solid Waste.

Homeowners can bring their household garbage, limbs, metal (white goods), etc. to the landfill.  The first 500lbs per month are free. The homeowner will be charge for anything over that 500 pounds per month.
