It Pays to Recycle!

The South Carolina Recycling Market Development Advisory Council, managed within the South Carolina Department of Commerce, recently released results from a new economic impact study that shows recycling plays an important role in the State's economy.

According to the study, the recycling industry creates an estimated $6.5 billion total economic impact in the State's economy.

Free Recycling Bins

 Permanent recycling bins can be located across from Hanahan Middle School and in Otranto across from Fire Station 2.  

These locations accept newspaper, glass, and aluminum cans.  The Otranto location also accepts cardboard.  

The City of Hanahan is working with its residents and Berkeley County on additional drop off in Tanner Plantation to  help with our recycling needs.
