Serving Edgefield, McCormick & Saluda Counties  

Business Recycling:


Paper and cardboard take up almost half the space in a landfill. Businesses can recycle and save money on waste disposal costs. The Tri-County Solid Waste Authority offers office paper recycling and cardboard recycling with free pickup service. Businesses can also go the extra mile to recycle other materials at work including plastic bottles and aluminum cans as well as ink jet cartridges.

Waste Assessment

Before you start your business recycling program, a waste assessment will be scheduled to provide you with the best recycling options for your business. Click here to schedule an appointment. A waste assessment is an appointment that reviews your trash and identifies what can be reduced, reused and recycled. Please allow at least 30 minutes for this scheduled appointment.

Cardboard Recycling

Cardboard collection services are currently free, but escalating transportation/collection costs might one day result in a fee based service. The cardboard container is an 8-yard size. Collection service depends upon the amount of cardboard generated, but each time it's picked up, it is free!

Office Paper Recycling

The Office Paper Recycling Program provides businesses in the region the opportunity to recycle office paper at no charge. Collection service schedule will be determined on a per customer basis and remember the service of the container is provided at no cost.

The following types of paper are recycled through the Office Paper Recycling Program: copy paper, computer paper (all colors), sticky notes, stationary paper, newspaper, junk mail, magazines, envelopes (windows ok), carbonless paper, fax paper, and shredded paper. Tape and staples on the paper is ok.

Plastic Bottles and Aluminum Cans Recycling

For businesses that generate plastic bottles and aluminum cans, the Tri-County Solid Waste Authority recommends taking these recyclables to the nearest recycling center. The Tri-County Solid Waste Authority is currently not equipped to collect plastic bottles or aluminum cans from businesses in the Tri-County area.

Printer Cartridge Recycling

Businesses can recycle printer cartridges through a postage-paid program. Just look for printer cartridge envelopes or drop-off boxes at local stores, such as Office Depot, Office Max, Wal-Mart or Best Buy.
