Nov 07, 2018 11:20AM ● By Kathleen Maris

RePower South Berkeley is using a $43,850,000 tax-exempt bond issue through the South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA) to build a new county mixed waste processing facility to deliver cost effective recycling and landfill diversion to Berkeley County.

The Berkeley County Recycling and Recovery Facility will process mixed waste to separate recyclables such as aluminum and plastics from county collections and process non-recyclable materials into a substitute for coal fuel.

“JEDA bonds make it possible for Berkeley County to provide its residents with the least cost, highest recycling recovery systems that maximize re-use and minimize landfill disposal,” said Brian Gihuly, COO of RePower South.
