Friday’s editorial urges Horry County and state leaders to work on their relationship, which has fractured noticeably during the recent debate about where to send our local trash:
“Why would they introduce a bill that goes against the people of Horry County?”
– Horry County Councilman Harold Worley, speaking of local legislators
“It’s not free enterprise, it’s not open market; it’s government monopoly.”
– S.C. House Majority Leader Kenny Bingham, sponsor of H. 4721
When it comes to determining what to do with our trash, most residents probably don’t care that much. Pick it up from the curb, truck it away and it’s quickly forgotten. But what to do with all that trash once it’s in the truck has quickly become the focus of quite a fight among local leaders.
