Brian Callihan, General Manager

Berkeley County provides special services within the boundaries of the Sangaree Special Tax District, including:

  • Fire Protection
  • Solid Waste Collection
  • Recreation
  • Maintenance of Common Areas

Five resident property owners are appointed by County Council to serve on the Sangaree Special Tax District Advisory Commission. The Advisory Commission advises Berkeley County Council of the nature and level of services desired by the citizens within the district. The Advisory Commission also recommends a budget which provides sufficient revenue from ad valorem taxes to defray the costs and expenses for providing the additional services. The additional services are provided by the use of the County employees and equipment or by contract with private agencies approved by Berkeley County Council.

Special Announcement: Recycling
On May 17, 2018 the Chief Operating Officer, Tim Herman, of Waste Pro USA contacted Berkeley County concerning the Recycling Service in the Sangaree Special Tax District. He informed us at that time there was no longer a facility locally to take materials that we regularly recycle. He requested at that time for Berkeley County to release Waste Pro USA from their contract.
Subsequently, the Commissioners of the Sangaree Special Tax District met with Brian Callihan and myself on Tuesday, May 22 to discuss the request. Because there is no local facility, it was agreed that Berkeley County should release Waste Pro USA from their contract.
Recycling containers will continue to be emptied on June 1 and June 15, 2018, at which time service will be terminated. Please be sure to put your containers, full or empty, are at your designated location, no later than 7:00 AM on Friday, June 15, 2018.
Any questions should be directed to Brian Callihan or Laura Baker at 843-871-9720.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Berkeley County Government Contracts Administrator
