REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Since 1995, the Berkeley County Solid Waste Authority has been striving to provide a convenient, efficient and cost effective recycling program for the residents of Berkeley County. Our dedication to the environment has resulted in the development of one of the most comprehensive voluntary drop off and curbside recycling program in the region.


Why Recycle?

  • If all morning newspapers read in the United States were recycled, 41,000 trees would be saved daily and 6 million tons of waste would never end up in landfills.
  • Recycling an aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television set for three hours.
  • Each year, steel recycling saves the energy equivalent to electrically power about one-fifth of U.S. households for one year.
  • The aluminum beverage can returns to the grocer's shelf in as little as 60 days after collection.
  • Americans buy over 85 million tons of paper per year-that's about 700 pounds per person.
  • Most aluminum recovered is used to manufacture new cans.
