ALBA COURT UNSTAFFED RECYCLING DROP-OFF SITE CLOSING FEBRUARY 1ST

Due to changing markets and service providers, Spartanburg County will be closing the unstaffed Alba Court recycling center, located behind Krispy Kreme, 366 N. Church St. in Spartanburg as of February 1st, 2020.

We understand that closing this convenient 24/7 site will cause some issues with our local residents who have been recycling single stream materials there for many years, but unfortunately, contamination continues to affect our single stream recycling efforts and proper waste collection of the site, and due to a dearth of service providers for single stream recycling, Spartanburg County will no longer be operating any unstaffed drop-off sites.

We encourage residents to please continue recycling at any of our 17 staffed collection centers, which are open Monday through Saturday from 7 AM until 7 PM. The closest site to our Alba Court location is at 50 Dexter Rd., Spartanburg, 29303. Materials at staffed sites are not accepted as single stream recycling, but we do offer dual-stream services, meaning that all plastic containers/aluminum cans/steel cans/cartons are separated and placed into an open top dumpster, and all mixed paper/cardboard are placed into an onsite compactor container.

Our staffed sites are serviced by Spartanburg County’s Solid Waste Collections Department and delivered to service providers for the individual commodities.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience to the residents who use this center, and we hope you choose to continue recycling by taking advantage of any of our other collection sites, which are conveniently spaced throughout the County. Locations can be found at the "What and Where Can I Recycle" link to the left of the screen.

If you have questions about this change, please contact our Recycling Coordinator by email at jswanson@spartanburgcounty.org or by telephone at 864-949-1658.

We encourage all residents to recycle.  Recycling is great for the environment, conserving natural resources, preserving valuable landfill space, reducing litter, and lessening soil and water pollution.  It's also great for our economy; the County generates revenue through the sale of recyclables, and recycling is a $13 billion industry sustaining 500 companies and over 20,000 jobs in South Carolina!
