Town to End Commercial Dumpster Collection
Posted Date:
11/17/2014
The Town of Clover will be making several significant changes to the commercial garbage collection program effective January 1, 2015.
Thecurrent ordinance which requires participation by commercial customers in a Town-managed collection program is being modified and will allow such customers flexibility in selecting their own service provider.  Effective January 1, 2015, the Town will no longer provide dumpster service to commercial properties.  Some commercial customers with roll out containers serviced by the Town may also be required to obtain a dumpster.If your business, church or civic organization is currently using a dumpster provided by Republic Services under the Town’s contract with them, this contract will end on December 31, 2014, and you will need to make arrangements with a service provider to ensure continuity of service.  If you share this dumpster with one or more other businesses, you are encouraged to discuss the options with your business neighbors as soon as possible.  The Town recognizes that some businesses which currently share a dumpster may no longer desire to cost share with other businesses.  This means that for some, the cost for service will increase. 

If you are currently using one or more roll out containers at your business, church or civic organization, please contact Debbie Lark at 803-222-9495 to indicate if you desire to continue or discontinue this service.  The following new fee schedule is being proposed to Town Council: $25/month for up to 2 roll out containers plus $25 for each additional roll out.  The Town reserves the right to refuse commercial roll out service and will evaluate each location to determine if a dumpster will fit on the property.

Republic Services (800-948-7310) and Signature Waste Systems (704-714-9400) have indicated a desire to provide commercial service.  You may be contacted by a company representative soon to discuss service options.  You do not have to choose either of these companies.

Note that illegal dumping of garbage into someone else’s private dumpster is prohibited and will be strictly enforced.  Businesses are encouraged to find a suitable alternative for disposal of their garbage that doesn’t include illegal dumping and/or using someone else’s dumpster!

Questions?  Contact Sanitation Supervisor Mike Carpenter at 222-7700 or Billing Clerk Debbie Lark at 222-9495.
