Municipal Recycling Programs

Recycling programs are available through certain municipalities, homeowners associations and private haulers. The SWA does not provide residential trash or recycling curbside collection. The following is a list of municipalities and private haulers that offer trash and recycling services:

Landscaping Materials For Sale

Horry County Solid Waste Authority offers compost, mulch and glass aggregate for sale to residents and businesses for landscaping and gardening purposes. They are sold at the county landfill located at 1886 Highway 90 in Conway and you must come and collect the material. The Solid Waste Authority does not deliver. The facility is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 

  • Compost - made from ground yard trimmings (e.g., leaves, branches, grass) and costs $20 per ton. Enhanced Compost is also available for $30 per ton which has added nutrients from food scraps. Please call (843) 347-1651 to see if compost is available. Quantities are limited and the supply runs out quickly.

  • Natural Mulch - made from ground land-clearing debris (e.g., large branches, stumps, trunks) - also is available for $20 per ton. This mulch is an all-natural product.
