The hours of operation for recycling centers across Georgetown County will be more consistent and predictable beginning Monday, Jan. 30. The Environmental Services Division has announced plans to standardize center hours.
When the changes go into effect, all centers will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. (View the new center schedules with new hours highlighted.)
The standard operating hours for centers at the Landfill, Old Pee Dee, North Santee, Yauhannah and Browns Ferry recycling centers will be permanently modified. Center weekday hours for Old Pee Dee will change to 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Browns Ferry, North Santee and Yauhanna centers will now all have the same schedule: 6 a.m. to noon Mondays and Thursdays, and noon to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays. North Santee, Yauhannah, Browns Ferry and Big Dam centers will continue to be closed on Wednesdays.
All centers except Murrells Inlet, Pawleys Island and Johnson Road will continue to be closed on Sundays.
“Environmental Services is making these changes to improve our services and consistency across the centers and reduce the number of scheduling conflicts,” said Michelle LaRocco, Division manager.
These changes will not affect hours at the commercial landfill facility. Only residential trash and recycling facility hours will be impacted.
Signage at the affected centers will be updated and fliers with new operations hours will be posted in advance of the change. Residents with questions may call Environmental Services at (843) 545-3443.
