ATTENTION ALL LEE COUNTY RESIDENTS:

Lee County is Instituting the Following Changes in Operations at our current Collection Sites for Trash:

Lee County is planning several changes to our current operations at the Manned Trash Collection Centers operated by the County for residents to dispose of household trash and other items. Currently the county has nine locations where household trash as well as limb debris, used oil, tires, E-waste (Electronic Waste such as TVs and computers), scrap metal and other materials can be brought for disposal. In addition, four of the locations currently accept plastic materials such as bottles for recycling.

Due to the rising cost of collecting these various types of materials for disposal the county is going to be making some changes to our current operations for collecting this unwanted material.

Starting Sept. 30, 2019, the following changes will take effect for the collection and disposal of waste material by Lee County Public Works:

Plastic Materials- Due to changes beyond the county’s control, specifically the rising cost of disposing of plastic recyclables, the county is suspending its collection of plastic materials for the purpose of recycling. Until further notice, all plastic waste is to be disposed of with regular household trash in the compactors located at each Manned Collection Site in the county. The county will continue to monitor the availability of third-party vendors who will accept recyclable plastic, and if a method of disposal is developed, which is cost neutral to the county, the plastic recycling program will be reinstated.

Disposal of Tires and E-Waste- The County will no longer accept tires and e-waste at all nine manned trash site locations. These materials will only be accepted on Saturdays at the following Manned Trash Collection Sites: The Airport location, which is adjacent to the Public Works Facility at 116 Airport Road or at the Bradley Road Site, located at 249 Bradley Road, Bishopville, which is near Elliot. By limiting the number of locations where tires and e-waste are accepted, the county will save on the cost of hauling this waste from all nine sites to a centralized collection point for disposal. Additionally, by consolidating our collection points, we will be able to more closely monitor who is bringing tires to the county for disposal.

The county’s policy is that it will only accept a maximum of 5 tires per day from each county resident and the county does not accept tires from commercial businesses which change tires as part of their business services. The County also accepts tires from trucking companies or agricultural operations if an invoice is presented at the time of disposal for the purchase of an equal number of tires and shows the fee for disposal of tires has been paid on the new tires which were purchased. Any trucking business or farming operation which needs to dispose of tires through the county should contact the Public Works Director and schedule an appointment to bring tires to the Public Works Facility at 116 Airport Road; tires should not be brought on site without a scheduled drop off time. The Public Works Department can be reached by phone at 803-484-6196.

The County apologizes for any inconvenience to residents as a result of these changes. However, these steps are being taken to avoid additional fees or taxes to sustain our current level of operations in the area of waste collection and disposal. Thank you to each resident for your cooperation as these changes are implemented.

Just a reminder that all manned site locations are for residents to dispose of household trash and used oil and limb debris.  Additionally, the Public Works and Bradley sites also accept tires and electronic waste such as TVs and computers on Saturday.

One additional site for Lee County Residents to dispose of household trash and light construction debris such as shingles, wood or insulation is the Lee County Landfill, 1431 Sumter Hwy.; which is owned and operated by Republic Services. Lee County residents are allowed to bring these items for disposal during the days and hours of operation listed below. The Landfill does not accept limb debris, tires, used oil or electronic waste such as TVs or computers.

Lee County Landfill is open during the following days and times:

Monday-Friday-         6 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Saturday-                    7 a.m. – 11 a.m.
