Ever wonder what happens to your trash and garbage once crews collect it from curbside at your home?  It's taken to the city's Solid Waste Division on Mr. Joe White Avenue, where trucks drive across the giant scale on their way to the transfer station atop a nearby hill.  After backing onto the tipping room floor, the trucks unload their cargo.  A typical solid waste truck holds about nine tons of compacted material, although the city has trucks of different sizes to serve different needs.  Down in the waste pit, a moving floor sends the garbage into a compactor, which loads the waste onto a tractor-trailer for the trip to the Horry County landfill.
