The Jake Abraham Transfer Station is making great progress

Work is progressing on the Jake Abraham Transfer Station on Mr. Joe White Avenue. The City of Myrtle Beach is building a new facility to handle solid waste and recycling. The project should be ready for service sometime this fall. A transfer station allows the waste to be transferred into larger trucks for transport to the Horry County Landfill and the Materials Recycling Facility on Highway 90.

Jake Abraham worked as a solid waste collection operator from January 1947 until his retirement in 1980, completing 33 years of dedicated service to the residents of Myrtle Beach. Known as “Mr. Jake,” he was a great role model for the community. Mr. Abraham died in 2011 at age 91.
