We encourage all residents to recycle. Recycling is great for the environment, conserving natural resources, preserving valuable landfill space, reducing litter, and lessening soil and water pollution. It's also great for our economy; the County generates revenue through the sale of recyclables, and recycling is a $13 billion industry sustaining 500 companies and over 20,000 jobs in South Carolina!
