Florence County does NOT pay for materials recycled!
Mattress recycling – Instead of sending to the landfill think about recycling your old mattress and/or box spring with local company Nine Lives Mattress Recycling at 837 N. Pamplico Hwy in Pamplico, call 843-916-9753. Normally a $5 charge per item; check for additional pricing for king size, etc. This action will save the county (and your family) in landfill disposal costs, plus boost recycling in Florence County.
Paint disposal – the County will accept old paint as long as the paint in the can has been completely absorbed using cat litter, shredded paper, etc.; then the can may be disposed of in the regular household trash. Suggest trying first to recycle by donating to Habitat for Humanity as a base coat for housing projects or check with local paint stores for recycling/takeback programs.
