Landfill waives tipping fees for residential storm debris

GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) — The Georgetown County Landfill has waived all tipping fees for drop off of residential storm debris. However, all commercial haulers are still required to pay the fee at this time.

"We want to be helpful while our area is recovering from damages done by last week's storm, but as things stand, it seems fair to us that businesses who are being paid to remove debris should pay the regular tipping fee versus passing the cost along to taxpayers," said Ray Funnye, director of Georgetown County Public Services.

In an effort to meet demand from commercial haulers and residents looking to get rid of storm debris, the landfill and all community recycling centers are open for regular hours today. However, recycling centers are reserved for residential waste and debris only.
