Richland County Hosts Recycle Day

Richland County’s Solid Waste and Recycle division, in partnership with the S.C. Department of Agriculture, will host Richland Recycles Day on Saturday, May 12, at the S.C. State Fairgrounds from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For Richland County residents only, this annual event gives residents the opportunity to responsibly get rid of potentially hazardous materials, such as paint, chemicals, pesticides, tires (limit eight per family) and fluorescent bulbs.

Other acceptable items include batteries, scrap metal, household electronics and appliances, bicycles and much more. In addition, shreddable paper will be accepted (limit eight boxes per resident). As a note, this recycle event is for residents only—not commercial businesses. All those participating are asked to enter the fairgrounds area at gate number 12.

Location: S.C. State Fairgrounds, 1200 Rosewood Dr., Columbia. For more information, including a complete list of acceptable materials and recycle guidelines, call 803-576-2446 or visit RCGov.US/RichlandRecycles.
