DHEC developed the Smart Business Recycling Program through resources made available by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) WasteWise program. EPA encourages businesses, organizations and governments to join WasteWise as a partner and/or endorser. DHEC has done this through its S.C. Smart Business Recycling Program.
Partners demonstrate how they reduce their environmental impact and incorporate sustainable material management into their waste management. Endorsers promote joining WasteWise as part of a comprehensive approach to show the environmental and economic benefits to reducing waste.
