Myrtle Beach’s new solid waste transfer station is named for one of the city’s longest-serving staff members. The Jake Abraham Transfer Station on Mr. Joe White Avenue Extension was completed in December 2021 at a cost of $5 million. Dedication ceremonies were held January 25, with many of Abraham’s family and friends on hand, including his daughters: Mary, Janet, Doris and Hilda. Following military service during World War II, Mr. Abraham came home to Myrtle Beach. He found employment with the city and served our residents and businesses from 1947 to 1986. As a solid waste collection operator, he was well-known in the community during those 39 years. “Mr. Jake,” as he was called, died in 2011 at age 91.
