Disposal Tips
Your help is needed regarding the regular collection of trash. This beneficial service provides curbside trash collection to approximately 10,000 locations weekly. In order to provide this service effectively, efficiently, and according to the regulations, you must separate your trash.

There are four categories of trash. The listing below describes how to properly separate your trash in order to meet the mandatory requirements of the Anderson County Landfill, the City, and SCDHEC.

Remember, the City cannot collect mixed trash. Even small amounts of paper or rocks placed on top of your grass clippings will result in delayed or lack of collection. Hidden and obstructed mixed trash can result in extra costs to repair damaged equipment or nonacceptance at the landfill.

If you have questions about how to properly dispose of trash, please call the Sanitation Department at (864) 231-2246. Please do your part to keep our streets clean and help the environment.
