Trash flow changes go into effect

All trash in Horry County must now be dumped in county owned landfills.
Horry County's new trash flow ordinance took affect Monday.
This comes after a federal judge refused to put the new rule on hold.
Two private trash collectors asked the judge to do that until a lawsuit against the Horry County Solid Waste Authority is settled.
Some private haulers say the new rules will put them out of business and create a county-run monopoly.
Supporters say flow control will keep the county from losing millions from the garbage going elsewhere.
