McDuffie County Departments

Solid Waste Disposal

The Department of Solid Waste Management provides the customers of McDuffie County with an environmentally responsible and cost-effective system for reduction and disposal of solid waste through quality service, education and public involvement.

McDuffie County operates a solid waste transfer station located off Mesena Road. All solid waste generated in McDuffie County is processed through this facility. We not only handle the waste stream produced by the citizens of McDuffie County, but also the waste streams of Glascock and Warren counties and the cities of Thomson, Dearing, Gibson, and Warrenton.

Our waste is transferred to the Waste Management owned R&B Landfill in Homer, Ga., for disposal. We operate a transfer station, as well as an inert landfill for trees, branches, bricks and concrete disposal.

Our facility is located adjacent Mesena Road, at 514 Tankersley Road, 4.5 miles west of Thomson. We accept all commercial and residential waste (excluding asbestos, biomedical materials, and any regulated prohibited waste), produced in our area.  

We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 5pm and on Saturday from 8am to 2pm.

We accept Ni-Cad batteries from cell phones, cordless phones, pagers, as well as old cell phones, for recycling. They are accepted free of charge. Please present them to the attendant at the scale house.

Tires are accepted. The prices vary between passenger car and truck tires. Please call for prices.

A special residential waste drop-off site is maintained at our facility for a clean, quick disposal area for those wishing to haul their own trash and save a little cash.

Our solid waste department is staffed by five county employees, including a Georgia and SWANA certified manager.
