Debris Still an Issue, County Offers Advice on Disposal

web posted March 25, 2014

COUNTY Almost all of the debris from the February ice storm has been removed from state roads, however; many county roads are still in need of attention. The County had a certified FEMA contractor come in and give an estimate on removal of debris from county roads at a cost of nearly $3.7 million. In order to receive the FEMA funds, the county would have to cough up nearly $1 million it does not have and the funds have not even been offered at this time.

Edgefield County Administrator Lynn Strom said the county road crews are working to remove debris as fast as possible, but with a single crew, progress is slow. However, there are options available if you wish to haul the debris on your own for disposal at no charge. Below are those options:
The convenience center sites in the County are accepting storm debris. When utilizing the sites, please be sure that the debris is in 4 ft. segments or less to fit properly in the disposal container. This will allow the sites to accommodate debris from more citizens. 

If your community has large amounts of debris that cannot be accepted at the convenience center sites, please bring the debris to the Tri-County Transfer Station located at 14 Transfer Drive off of Weaver Road in Johnston. Their hours of operation are Monday Friday 7:00 am to 3:30 pm.  The phone number is 803-275-5608.  There is no charge for a home owner to bring debris off of their property to the Transfer Station. However, commercial businesses utilizing the Transfer Station will have to pay a disposal fee.

If you have any further questions, you can call the County Administration Office at 803-637-4000.
