Beginning Jan. 15, Foxhole will limit patrons coming from South Carolina to garbage disposal of 5 bags per visit, with vehicles limited to one visit per day of operations.
Why are we doing this?
The Foxhole residential disposal site has seen increasing amounts of materials from residents of Lancaster County and the Indian Land area. Several facility users are coming to the site multiple times each day, and appear to be running a disposal service, and using this facility for free. While we wish to remain a good neighbor, residents from South Carolina do not pay any fee to Mecklenburg County for disposal service. Therefore, to limit our costs and encourage South Carolina residents to recycle, kitchen type trash will be limited to 5 bags per visit. Commercial companies with Construction and Demolition Waste must cross the scales and pay for that material as they normally would.
Recycling will be unlimited and is strongly encouraged. Separating recyclables from household trash will substantially reduce the volume of trash you have for disposal and will allow you to comply with the bag limits. Residential waste is not disposed of in the Foxhole Landfill. Mecklenburg County pays to have this material trucked to the Speedway Landfill in Concord, NC.
If residents have more materials for disposal they may contact the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Program at 803-283-2101. We are working on a program with Lancaster County, whereby you would call them to receive a voucher for disposal here if you do have more materials. Lancaster does operate waste disposal facilities.

Additionally, residential curbside collection service is available by several private companies who can be found via the Internet or Yellow Pages.
