Mission Statement
 
To promote the environmental and economic benefits of recycling by providing convenient access to centers, and offering free recycling education for Spartanburg County residents.

Spartanburg County's Recycling Department offers 17 staffed Recycling Convenience Centers for County Residents.  All staffed recycling centers are open Monday through Saturday from 7 AM until 7 PM, except Station #16, Wellford, which closes at 4:30 PM.

For a list of Recycling Center Locations and to learn What and Where to recycle, please go to our What and Where Can I Recycle page!

The County also offers an annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event each spring, and semi-annual Community Clean-Up Events in the spring and fall.  Please email, call, or check our website for upcoming event information.

To schedule a FREE recycling or composting education program for your school, scout troop, church group, civic club, or any other group, or to tour the Wellford Landfill, contact our Recycling Coordinator by email at [email protected] or by phone 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!
