Elected officials in the State of South Carolina are left scrambling to find a solution for a recycling program for Dorchester County residents after a curbside recycling program slated for them fell through. The officials are unsure where the disconnect happened between the city and the county.
For the time being, the town of Summerville is going to allow residents to subscribe to a private company for curbside pickup of metals and plastics. The town will also continue to provide curbside pickup of paper and cardboard for all residents.
