Help Turn Wood Waste Into Fuel
Clean wood waste is now being accepted at the Edmund C&D Landfill and the Ball Park, Bush River, Chapin, Edmund, Sandhills, and Southeast Collection and Recycling Centers for grinding. Clean wood waste includes: branches and shrubbery (with minimal leaves), stumps, clean lumber (residential waste only), and pallets only (no pine straw or leaves). At the designated Collection Centers, place the clean wood waste in the compactor labeled “Clean Wood Only”. At the landfill, the scale house attendant will direct you where to take the clean wood.
Before coming to the landfill, separate the clean wood from other trash and construction debris. The wood chips will be marketed as boiler fuel. Currently, yard debris is buried in the Lexington County Edmund C&D Landfill. Grinding the clean wood will extend the life of the landfill and save other natural resources from being used as boiler fuel. For more information on the wood waste grinding, contact the Edmund Landfill at (803) 755-3325.
