In FY07, Florence County was fortunate to receive a grant from the SCDHEC Office of Solid Waste and Recycling. The grant allowed the County to continue its used oil filter collection program, to acquire a second Farmer’s Used Oil Collection Station and to construct the County’s first Gas/Oil Mixture Collection Station.
Citizens now have the first Gas/Oil Mixture Collection Station in Florence County. The new 275 gallon gas/oil tank situated on a concrete pad covered by a carport is located at 359 South Ebenezer Road in Florence.
The Farmer’s of Lower Florence County have a convenient and state of the art used oil collection station in the form of a new 600 gallon agri tank located at 273 N Church Street in Lake City.
Beginning Monday, February 3, 2020, all manned sites are open from 7 AM to 7 PM Monday through Saturday. Holiday closures will be posted on the homepage.

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.
