Department of Solid Waste Mission Statement
Providing quality waste disposal services, which compile with federal, state, and local regulations for municipal solid waste and construction, demolition, and land clearing debris for the citizens of Bamberg County.
Bamberg County Solid Waste Department is responsible for operating and maintaining a Solid Waste Transfer Station designed for the processing of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). The waste is received from municipalities and private waste haulers and loaded onto trailers for transport and disposal in an approved landfill facility at Three Rivers Solid Waste Authority (TRSWA) in Jackson, South Carolina.
The county also operates a Construction & Demolition landfill where all construction type waste meeting regulatory guidelines is disposed of in the landfill. Waste tires are also collected at the Bamberg County Landfill where they are shipped to a tire processing facility and recycled at its landfill. Yard debris is also accepted at the Bamberg County Landfill.
The Department also manages eight Solid Waste Collection & Recycling Centers (Convenience Sites) throughout the County. Click here to see their locations and hours of operation.
