The South Carolina Department of Commerce and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) announced the launch of a new online recycling tool that creates a network for recyclable materials. The Recycling Markets Directory is a collaborative resource that connects companies with recyclable waste products with other organizations that can utilize the materials.
A free online tool, the directory helps manufacturers keep valuable materials in motion by reducing waste and helping businesses meet sustainability goals. The platform showcases more than 300 South Carolina recycling companies, and it allows manufacturers to easily find recyclers in the area.
"Recycling is a green growth industry in South Carolina," said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt. "This tool provides the essential links between businesses and industries searching for markets for recyclables and can help companies save money, improve supply chain resilience and generate value through reusable materials."
Among its many features, the Recycling Markets Directory is easy to use and provides a robust resource directory where users can search by category, service area or keywords. Searches are downloadable and include company contact information.
"Recycling will not work without markets," said Myra Reece, director of Environmental Affairs at DHEC. "This directory is an integral tool for businesses, local governments and others that provides a listing of recyclers and companies that need these materials to manufacture recycled-content products."
