McGill to Open Organics Recycling Facility in South Carolina

McGill Environmental Systems of N.C. Inc. plans to open its seventh organics recycling facility next year in Berkeley County, S.C.

The Harrells, N.C.-based McGill said in a news release that the advanced, indoor compost manufacturing plant will be built on the site of the county’s water and sanitation yard waste operation near Moncks Corner. McGill expects to hire up to 25 to staff the facility when it opens at the end of the year.

The project is a public-private collaboration between the county and McGill. The facility will be built on county land but owned and operated by McGill.  The company will accept and process a wide range of biodegradable materials from municipal, commercial and industrial generators to make its line of compost products for the professional sports turf, landscaping and stormwater/erosion control markets. McGill also sells bulk and bagged products through retail lawn and garden centers.

When complete, the Berkeley facility will give McGill a combined annual processing capacity of about 500,000 tons from all its facilities. The company also operates facilities in North Carolina, Virginia and Ireland.
