The Cherokee County Construction and Demolition (C&D) Landfill opened in the mid-1990s following the closure of the old MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) landfill.
Regular household garbage does not go into the C&D landfill.
However, there are containers by the main gate for household trash. There is no fee for drop-off in those containers for Cherokee County residents.
The Transfer Station allows businesses to drop off large amounts of trash, broken pallets, cardboard, debris and other items. The Transfer Station fee is $56.70 per ton.
The C&D Landfill Tipping Fee is $35 per ton. Businesses may drop off construction and demolition items here.
Acceptable items for the C&D landfill:
- Large steel
- Appliances (including white goods, such as stoves, refrigerators, microwaves, dishwashers)
- Electronics (a $10 fee may apply for electronics)
- Waste Oil
- Yard debris
- Concrete and asphalt
- Metal items such as fencing, wheelbarrows and lawn mowers
*While cardboard is accepted at the landfill, we prefer that you take it to the recycling center.
Note: No hazardous wastes of any kind are accepted at the landfill. The C&D Landfill also does not accept telephone poles or railroad ties.
The Cherokee County C&D Landfill no longer accepts large quantities of asbestos. For information on how to dispose of that, visit the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.
