BCWS provides recycling update to City residents

This information has been provided to the City of Goose Creek from Berkeley County Water & Sewer:

It has been reported in the local media over the past few weeks that recycling has been a difficult issue for local governments to manage. Fortunately, Berkeley County has been working and continues to work towards a longterm and sustainable solution for recycling, including a recovery and sorting center.

Until the new recovery and sorting facility is completed, there continues to be a need for curbside recycling pickup. Unfortunately, due to the current commodity market, Republic Services has been forced to increase its rates for providing this service for county residents.

Starting Sept. 1, 2016, Republic Services will charge $15 per month billed quarterly for Recycling Collection Services.

Due to a new contract with Sonoco Recycling, starting on Sept. 1, 2016, Berkeley County Water and Sanitation will be limiting the type of recyclables collected at the convenience centers across the county to paper, cardboard, aluminum and metal only. Thus, if you do not subscribe to a curbside recycling service, you will need to start putting plastic and glass into your trash bins.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Sarah McCarthy-Smith, the Recycling Coordinator at BCW&S, at (843) 719-2383 or you may email to sarah.smith@berkeleycountysc.gov
