The Dorchester County Solid Waste Department provides convenience site locations for County residents to dispose of household garbage, brown goods, white goods, construction and demolition debris, yard debris, and recyclables. The department assists with the task of keeping each site clean and orderly through the efforts of part-time and full time employees. It is responsible for litter reduction through Codes Enforcement, and increased recycling through public education. We also aid in the cleanup and disposal of roadside debris and litter through the Community Service Program, Keep America Beautiful, and Codes Enforcement Officers.   Code Enforcement handing
