Effingham County

Welcome Residents of Effingham County,

Atlantic Waste would like to thank you and your representatives for the opportunity to provide you with the highest quality waste and recycling service possible.  We feel that we will be a significant upgrade from your former waste service provider. To give you some background Atlantic Waste was started in Savannah, in 1998, by Ben & Burke Wall. We have grown to be the largest local owned waste hauling and collection company in the Coastal Empire through providing superior service and we plan on providing Effingham County the same excellent service. Our hope is that our website helps explain and detail what services we are providing and also what we ask from you, the Effingham County residents.

PICK UP SERVICES WILL BEGIN FEBRUARY 19th, 2018
