Convenience centers

The county has 12 convenience centers located thru out the county. The centers accept only residential material, all commercial and business waste must be taken to the Newberry County Transfer Station, 11374 SC Hwy 34, Newberry.

The following items will be accepted:

Household trash
Furniture
(If you have a truck and trailer load of these items you may be asked to carry to the Transfer Station, because of the volume. This keeps these sites from filling up so the next citizen will have a place to place their materials.)

RECYCLABLE ITEMS:

Glass items - Please separate by color - brown & clear. The County no longer accepts green or blue glass for recycling. All food residues must be removed and containers rinsed.

Newspapers, Magazines and Office Paper are collected together. Also in this container you can place any item that can be torn by hand, for example paper egg cartons, school books (after hard cover has been removed), and soda boxes.If the container has a waxy coating or is contaminated with food it cannot be taken.

Metals - washer/dryers, refrigerators, stoves, etc
(No automotive parts or materials, for example filters, engines, and engine components) Any appliance with Freon needs to be placed at a specific site at each center, the Freon will be collected properly to keep it from escaping into the environment. Freon is in AC’s refrigerators and freezers.

And the Transfer Station Site that is open Monday to Friday from 7:30AM to 4:00PM and Saturday 7:30 AM to Noon

How can I remember what days most of the centers are open?

Key - If the first letter of the day can be found in the word trash , its open

examples - Saturday starts with the letter "S" and "S" is in the word trash - Center open

  Monday starts with the letter "M" and "M" is not in the word trash - Center closed

Due to Daylight Savings Time, Collection Centers that normally close at 7PM will close at 6PM.  This is necessary for safety and prior studies show that traffic is drastically lowered due to the shorter daylight hours.
