After years of consideration and construction, a new recycling facility is scheduled to open in Berkeley County, S.C., in early April.
According to a report in The Post and Courier, all municipalities in the county will dispose of their trash and recyclables at RePower South. Since September 2016, the county’s drop-off recycling sites only accepted paper and cardboard, while other recyclables were mixed with household trash to go to the landfill. Now, all recyclables will be recovered, according to the report.
The Post and Courier has more details:
No cleanup, no bins, no sorting necessary. When Berkeley County residents take out their trash, they’ll soon be recycling.
After nearly five years of consideration, conflict and construction, the RePower South recycling facility will open here in early April.
County residents won’t have to separate their paper and plastic from their trash. Whatever they place in their trashcan will be taken to this high-tech facility that will sort what can be salvaged from what ends up in the landfill.
