JEDA Nov. 6, 2018: RePower South Uses a $43.9 Million JEDA Bond Issue for New Mixed Waste Recycling and Recovery Plant

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.

Approximately 60 jobs are expected to be created. The facility will be located at the current Berkeley County landfill in Moncks Corner and is expected to open early next year.
