WHEN to Place Materials at the Curb

All containers/material must be at the curb by 6:30 am on collection day.

 

HOW to Place Materials at the Curb

If your materials are picked up by:

Advanced Disposal - Place your containers with the handles towards your house and the side of the lid that opens towards the street so that the arm on the truck can grab the metal bar and pick up the container.  Place containers on the street.  Make sure that there is a three foot clearance between each container and any other object (including cars, mail boxes, other containers, etc.).

Capital Waste Services -  Place your containers with the handles towards your house and the side of the lid that opens towards the street so that the arm on the truck can grab the metal bar and pick up the container.  Place containers on the street.  Make sure that there is a three foot clearance between each container and any other object (including cars, mail boxes, other containers, etc.).

Waste Industries - Most trucks require that containers be hand loaded so place your containers with the handles facing the street so that employees can quickly and easily pull them towards the truck.  Containers may be placed on the street, on your driveway or on your grass at the edge of the street. 

Some Waste Industries trucks use an automated arm to load trucks.  If your area is serviced by one of these, place your containers with the handles towards your house and the side of the lid that opens towards the street so that the arm on the truck can grab the metal bar and pick up the container.  Place containers on the street.  Make sure that there is a three foot clearance between each container and any other object (including cars, mail boxes, other containers, etc.).

 

WHAT IF I Can't Get My Container to the Curb?

Participants who have a verifiable medical or physical disability that prevents them placing their containers and yard waste at the curb on a weekly basis may submit a completed Medical/Physical Disability Verification Form to the Director of Solid Waste Management to request a waiver. With an approved waiver, the Franchise Service Provider will collect the roll cart container from a designated location adjacent to the house (e.g. in the backyard) at the curbside rate.  Call the Lexington County Solid Waste Management department at (803) 755-3325 for additional information.

 

WHEN Is Curbside Service Provided and Not Provided? 

To receive weekly reminders by text, email or phone, sign up for the free "Lexington County SC Solidwaste" app.  Curbside service is provided on the day assigned to your area Monday through Friday every day of the year except the following:

  • New Year's Day (January 1)
  • Independence Day (July 4)
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day (December 25)

No collection occurs on these holidays.  Curbside service will be delayed by one day during the weeks when these holidays occur and Friday's pick-up will take place on Saturday. 

 

If collection service is delayed due to severe weather or other emergencies, every effort will be made by the service providers and the County of Lexington to notify customers through the media, the 'County of Lexington' Facebook page, the County of Lexington's website and through "Lexington County SC Solidwaste" app notifications.

 

WHICH Company Services My Area?

Through a bid process, Lexington County contracts with multiple companies to provide curbside service to residents in the unincorporated areas of Lexington County.  Please see the Service Area Map to find out which company provides service in your area.  Call Lexington County's Solid Waste Management office at (803) 755-3325 for assistance or additional information.
