COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Six South Carolina businesses and two hospitality facilities were honored for outstanding waste reduction and recycling programs at the second annual South Carolina Smart Business Recycling Program awards ceremony, the state Department of Health and Environmental Control announced today.

“Businesses generate between 35 to 45 percent of the nation’s waste stream,” said Earl Hunter, DHEC commissioner. “Therefore, businesses play an important role in reducing the impact of wastes on the environment. By implementing simple waste reduction and recycling practices, businesses help protect our environment by conserving natural resources, reducing pollution and saving energy.”

Hunter said South Carolina’s businesses reported recycling more than 588,200 tons of material from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009.
Bausch & Lomb of Greenville, Eaton Corporation in Sumter, EuroKera of Fountain Inn, Michelin North America in Lexington, Michelin North America located in Sandy Springs and Shaw Industries in Columbia received awards, made from recycled glass, for their recycling programs. Bausch & Lomb is a repeat winner.

Special recognition was given to Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation of Gaffney for reaching its zero waste to landfill goal three months ahead of schedule. In October 2009, the last load of waste from their facility was sent to a landfill.

High Cotton restaurant in Charleston and Kiawah Island Golf Resort received the first Green Hospitality Program awards. Both businesses were recognized for incorporating environmental stewardship and sustainability within their daily practices including that recycling be made available to guests and staff throughout their facilities.

The South Carolina Smart Business Recycling Program is a partnership between DHEC and the South Carolina Department of Commerce. The program offers free, confidential, non-regulatory services including site visits, technical assistance, market research and workshops. For more information, visit www.scdhec.gov/smartbusiness.

In addition, DHEC and the S.C. Hospitality Association are partners in the Grren Hospitality Alliance, which offers a free certification for qualifying facilities. For more information, visit www.scdhec.gov/greenhospitality.
