Overview

Wasteco, Inc. operates a solid waste management facility at 500 Hamlin Road in Easley, SC. The site includes a Class 2 landfill that was originally permitted to operate in July of 2008. The facility also has approval to recycle construction and demolition debris. Typically they stockpile concrete and asphalt that they receive. They then crush/grind it for reuse or sale. 

Wasteco, Inc. is seeking to expand its Greenpointe Class 2 Landfill and has submitted a technical application to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). The review of the technical application is the second, and final, phase of DHEC’s permitting process.
