Lugoff is nice and quiet with relatively low crime and friendly people. I can't answer all of your questions but here's what I need to know:
Where are you coming here from? If you're coming from a big city I can speak to you in terms you understand and draw comparisons you can relate to.
That's my only question.
I don't know about administrative jobs but you can peruse the classified ads in the West Wateree Chronicle, a weekly community newspaper that comes free to your mailbox. They're published by Camden Media, which, as the name says, is in Camden (right down Highway 601/US 1). You should also be getting the Lugoff/Elgin Leader, which has classified ads as well.
Davis Disposal can haul your garbage for a reasonable price. If you don't want to PAY you can take your own garbage to the dump in Elgin. The first time you go there, you show your drivers' license or other proof of residence and they give you this K sticker to put in your window. County dumps are very strict about not letting folks from "outside" dump their garbage. But the place is easy to get to (run by a couple of elder gentlemen) and dumping is quick and free.
That's all I can think of right now. More info as it comes to me.
