Recognizing that recycling is an investment in the future, the City of Greer is planning a major renovation of its convenience center located at 315 Buncombe Street. The center is open to residents:

Monday-Friday ......... 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday ................... 8 a.m. - Noon

Regrettably, market conditions and the rising cost of processing recyclable materials will force the City of Greer and Meridian Waste to discontinue collection of curbside recyclables beginning August 1, 2022. Recyclables may be brought to the City of Greer Convenience Center or one of the nearby Greenville County or Spartanburg County convenience centers.

Recycling bins may be kept, placed at the curb for collection or dropped off at the City of Greer Public Services Department at 446 Pennsylvania Ave.

Please call 864-848-2184 or e-mail with any questions.

Old Vehicles


Your Old Car or Truck has Value!

The City of Greer does not accept vehicles for recycling, but your old car or truck potentially has value to a charitable organization and can save dollars on your next tax bill. Car website has posted an article on when it may pay to donate your vehicle to charity and how to determine its fair market value.

Which Charities are Legitimate?

There is no shortage of organizations that will accept used cars and trucks as donations. Among the better-known national non-profit organizations that accept used vehicles are Goodwill Industries, Make-A-Wish, Habitat for Humanity, and Kars4Kids. Do your research on any charitable organization before making the commitment and check with the IRS for information on tax deductions.
