Flow Control Costing Citizens Money

(Grand Strand Daily)

Demanding that all solid waste generated in Horry County be disposed at the Horry County Solid Waste Authority landfill on Hwy 90 forces the citizens of Horry County to pay higher fees for the disposal of construction and demolition waste than would otherwise be the case.

This revelation came during an SWA presentation of its FY 2013 proposed budget made to Horry County Council during council’s budget retreat last week.

Despite its claims to being an independent, non-profit, public benefit corporation, as it is registered with the S.C. Secretary of State’s office, the SWA budget is included in the county budget each year.

The SWA recently announced a new construction and demolition waste recycling program. The program will apply to loads of C&D waste that includes recyclable items such as metal, plastic, cardboard, clean wood and carpets.

    This is what that paid Dem. MB lobbyist wants, and we see it in his campaign donation to various GOP candidates.
    Look for him operating the sound system at various functions around the county, whenever there’s a band performing at some charity event.
    The drawback to all this will be the Out of State trash tractor trailers that will be permitted to enter our roadways to make deliveries at our landfill.
    All to benefit the Democrat Party of South Carolina …
