The South Carolina Department of Commerce recently partnered with the North Carolina Division of Environmental Assistance and Customer Service to host a two-day conference in Rock Hill featuring the South Carolina Carpet Recovery Coalition and the Carolinas Plastics Recycling Council (CPRC) meetings.
“From both an economic and environmental standpoint, the promotion of sustainable practices and sustainable businesses is critical to our state,” Chantal Fryer, director of Recycling Market Development for the South Carolina Department of Commerce, said. “That’s why we are proud to partner with our neighbors to the north." Fryer said these are important initiatives to both states and their companies and citizens.
“Plastics recovery is an extremely important part of the recycling economy in the Carolinas, and the CPRC has proven to be a great way to network within the industry, share technical information and identify ways to capture more discarded plastics,” Scott Mouw, the director of the N.C. Division of Environmental Assistance and Customer Service State Recycling, said. “We really appreciate the coordination with our South Carolina friends in helping the CPRC be a constructive force for plastic recycling in our two states.”
