What can I do with collected recyclables?
Finding a market for the recyclables you collect at work may be the toughest part of starting or expanding a recycling program.
First, check with your local government to see if it’s able to help your organization. And second, below are some links to different market resources.
- * Green Resource Index contains a listing of recyclers (both in and out-of-state) that are sorted by recovered material they accept.
- The S.C. Department of Commerce’s Recycling Business Directory provides convenient search features allowing users to find outlets for recycling commodities.
- The S.C. Materials Exchange is a free service that seeks to reduce waste by facilitating the exchange of reusable materials by businesses, non-profit institutions and government. It serves as a "matchmaking service" that provides users access to information on materials available or wanted.
- The S.C. Green Building Directory (SCGBD) is a resource for those interested in green building in South Carolina. The SCGBDcontains information about products and services that support green building practices as well as a listing of recyclers for construction and demolition debris.
