Aiken County Solid Waste is pleased to announce that electronic e-waste will be accepted at the following Residential Collection Centers in Aiken County for recycling:

20 yd containers will be placed at the above sites for the disposal of banned E-waste. These containers should only be used for the items listed below:

  •  Televisions, Computers (including laptops), Printers, and Monitors.
  •  Anything else should be placed in the compactor or metal bin for disposal.

All material that is put in them should be placed at the very front of the container and stacked up as tightly as possible. By doing this it will ensure that when the containers are pulled there will be very minimal breakage and full containers can still be pulled.

If anyone would have any questions please contact Aiken County Solid Waste Department at 803.642.1533.

Safety for you and our employees is a primary concern. We ask that you be safety conscious and courteous at all times. When our trucks are in the site swapping a container, it is important that they be able to get in and out quickly so that you will have space to place your waste. It is especially dangerous to cut in front of or behind the truck swapping the Household Compactor container – be patient and wait out of the way.

We ask your cooperation in delivering large loads (pickups & pickups with trailer loads) directly to the nearest Aiken County C&D Landfill during its operating hours. This will minimize traffic problems and make more container space available at the Recycling Drop-Off Centers for more citizens with smaller loads.
