January 5, 2023 - Greater Greenville Sanitation District (GGSD) to stop curbside recycling pick-up
The Greater Greenville Sanitation District provides a valuable service to our community with its commitment to keeping Greenville County clean and healthy. The solid waste management services provided are funded by the real and personal property taxes that residents and businesses within the district pay on an annual basis. It is imperative as a community service funded by tax dollars that Greater Greenville Sanitation manage the funding wisely and be good stewards of the monies received.
The total cost of collection and disposal of recyclable items is more than four (4) times the cost of collection and disposal of garbage. As of this week, the cost to dispose of garbage is $18.00 per ton while the cost to dispose of recyclable items is $65.00 per ton and growing.
After an extensive review of the increasing costs associated with the purchase and maintenance of equipment, fuel and personnel, Greater Greenville Sanitation has made the difficult decision to end recycling collection effective March 30, 2023.
The elimination of recycling collection will not affect the current millage or sanitation fees incurred by residents and businesses within the Greater Greenville Sanitation District. The savings incurred will be invested in automated garbage and yard waste collection equipment.
Those who wish to continue recycling may do so by using the six (6) residential waste and recycling centers and eleven (11) recycling drop off locations owned and operated by Greenville County. The list of locations may be found at www.greenvillecounty.org.
The last day of recycling collection will be March 30, 2023. You may keep the blue recycling roll carts or recycling dumpsters for garbage overflow if needed, or you may schedule a pickup of your recycling roll cart or recycling dumpster by calling customer service at 864-232-6721. A list of FAQs is provided at www.ggsc.gov.
