Annexation is the process by which the Greater Greenville Sanitation District (GGSD) expands its boundaries into adjacent areas so as to provide services.
Annexation into the GGSD offers a variety of benefits including:
- Full Standard Services (Garbage, Recycling, Bulk Waste, Green Waste) – Why limit your services when you can get it all!
- Many companies only provide garbage services and then upcharge for additional services.
- Bulk Waste Collection – Set it out and forget it!
- Many companies charge extra, or do not allow for collection of any items outside of the container.
- Green Waste Collection – No bagging, containerizing, or limit restrictions.
- Many companies do not offer this service and if they do you are restricted to a small container.
- Special Front-Door Service for Persons with Disabilities – Convenience when it matters the most!
- Most companies do not offer this service.
- Reduce Wear and Tear on Neighborhood Streets – You the taxpayer have a vested interest in the quality of roads in your area!
- A single garbage truck produces the equivalent of 10,000 cars on a road per day. By reducing the number of garbage trucks to one we reduce the weight, and decrease the likelihood, of cracks and pothole development thereby doubling a roads useful life.
- Decreased noise pollution – Less interruption at the Most Inconvenient Times!
- With a single hauler you will have a set schedule to plan your day around with collection occurring before 5:00
- Decrease air pollution – Breathe better with GGSD!
- All GGS vehicles undergo rigorous and regularly scheduled maintenance so as to ensure compliance with DHEC and EPA air quality
- Increase safety for pedestrians and pets – A commitment to safety!
- With GGS you are getting a commitment to safety. All employees are outfitted with special safety uniforms and equipment and receive on-going safety training and certification. GGS is also mindful of speed limits so as to maximize the safety of its employees and that of neighborhood residents.
