County Removes Recycling Facility

BLYTHEWOOD – Richland County has removed the recycling center that was previously was housed on the grounds of the Blythewood Community Center. The property was purchased by Sharpe Properties earlier this year and the big blue bins have been taken away and the center closed.

According to Town Administrator John Perry, who announced the closing at a recent Town Council meeting, much of the material that was recycled in the bins, such as cardboard, paper, plastic and glass, can now be recycled in the curbside recycling containers. Those containers are available from the Richland County Department of Solid Waste and Recycling.

Large amounts of recyclable items can be brought to Clemson’s Sandhill Research and Education Center across from The Village at Sandhill. For more information about recycling and waste disposal, go to richlandonline.com/Portals/O/TalkinTrashBrochure.pdf or call 929-6000.
