WasteZero Expanding Recycling, Manufacturing Plant in South Carolina

WasteZero is expanding its recycling and manufacturing plant in Hemingway, S.C., with a $3.1 million investment.

The Raleigh, N.C.-based WasteZero, which provides municipal solid waste reduction programs and customized plastic trash bags with recycled content, is adding 10,000 square feet to its facility and 27 jobs, according to a news release. The company expects to complete the expansion, which includes a recycling line, by the end of the first quarter next year.

WasteZero partners with more than 800 municipal customers in the United States to reduce waste and increase recycling. It makes customized plastic trash bags for waste reduction methods such as pay-as-you-throw programs.

South Carolina’s Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a rural infrastructure grant of $125,000 for the project.
