New online recycling directory connects companies with materials

The S.C. Department of Commerce and the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control have launched a new online recycling directory that connects companies with recyclable waste products with organizations that can use the materials.

The Recycling Markets Directory is free to use and showcases more than 300 S.C. recycling companies.

“Recycling is a green growth industry in South Carolina,” S.C. Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said in a news release. “This tool provides the essential links between businesses and industries searching for markets for recyclables and can help companies save money, improve supply chain resilience and generate value through reusable materials.”

Users can search the directory by category, service area or keywords. Searches are downloadable and include company contact information.

“Recycling will not work without markets,” said Myra Reece, DHEC director of environmental affairs. “This directory is an integral tool for businesses, local governments and others that provides a listing of recyclers and companies that need these materials to manufacture recycled-content products.”
