Administration building rolls out NEW recycling bins!
Friday, February 13, 2015
Richland County commits to reducing waste in county facilities.
We are rolling out new recycling bins at 2020 Hampton St for county employees. Staff and citizens can help by recycling plastic containers, metal cans, glass, and paper and cardboard in the county building recycling receptacles.
The new bins are a part of the County's goal to recycle 40% of waste generated in county buildings by 2020. We want to do our part as we ask citizens to do theirs through curbside recycling. The sustainability team will continue expand recycling options in county facilities.
What should you never throw in the recycling bin?
Plastic bags. Plastic bags jam sorting machines at recycling facilities.
Where should you recycle plastic bags?
Participating grocery stores.
