Solid Waste

Hart County Solid Waste manages eight convenience centers and a transfer station. Hart County has a pay-as-you-throw system. Trash must be placed in special bags purchased at the convenience centers located throughout the County. Trash and larger items can be brought to the Hart County transfer station and be disposed of by paying for the pounds of trash disposed.

The following items are prohibited from dumping:

  • Liquids
  • Oils
  • Gas
  • Liquid Paint
  • Tires
  • Car Batteries
Paint can be disposed of if dried out. Sand or cat litter can be used to dry up paint in the container.
Tires can be disposed of at a separate area, and there is a fee for disposal.
Car batteries can be recycled.

The Hart County Sheriff's Office is now handling Metal Recyclers' Registrations.
You can click here to find a copy of the registration form, which must be completed
and filed with the Hart County Sheriff's Office at 890 Vickery Street in Hartwell.
