Bluffton just invested $635,000 in a new 8-acre recycling and dump site on Simmonsville Road, upgrading Ms. Felix’s work environment considerably in the process.
In 2005, 5,637.96 tons of plastic No. 1 and No. 2; aluminum and steel cans; clear, brown and green glass; newspaper; cardboard, magazines and mixed paper were recycled via Beaufort County programs alone. The County has twelve reclamation sites.
An average of 1,200 to 1,500 cars pull into the Simmonsville Road center on a daily basis.
