Charleston County Fosters Food Waste Composting
Food Waste Disposal began its dedicated organics collection service in March 2012. Customers are provided 64-gallon totes, and food waste is hauled to the Bee’s Ferry Compost Facility.

After a year-long pilot, the South Carolina county received a permit to process food waste at its yard trimmings composting facility. Generators and haulers are stepping up to the plate.
