All Florence County Solid Waste Manned Convenience sites offer standard recycling for products such as:
However, there are a growing number of specialty items that are thrown away each day that are currently not accepted for recycling at the County Manned Convenience Sites. In order to aid its citizens, the County has researched alternative recycling methods. By using alternative recycling methods you not only help the environment but you can assist a non-profit, help a senior citizen and/or make use of a local commercial program.
Taking the “another man’s trash is another man’s treasure” approach, you may want to contact a local non-profit organization to donate usable items such as clothing, furniture and computers. Habitat for Humanity generally accepts old paint and leftover building materials to aid in the mission of their organization. Local nursing homes often encourage donation of magazines, books and craft items. A few local programs that accept old cell phones are Pee Dee Coalition, Verizon Wireless, Target, Sears, Schofield Hardware, GFF Group and Aldo. Rechargeable batteries can be recycled at many retail stores such as: Office Depot, Ace Hardware, Florence Battery World, Wal*Mart and Verizon or donate to the Pee Dee Coalition for their victim’s right program. Angel Ministries accepts donation of old cars, boats, motorcycles or RV-Trailers.
Please call ahead to these organizations and/or non-profits to check on availability and need of the organization.
Recycling can pay also. A few vendors in the Pee Dee Region will give cash for items.
Florence County encourages you to help in our efforts to avoid product placement in a landfill by use of alternative recycling methods.
