The S.C. Solid Waste Policy and Management Act of 1991 (Act) – S.C. Code of Laws § 44-96-140 – requires state agencies and state-supported colleges/universities to: Provide recycling programs for the collection of selected material including aluminum, cardboard, glass, lead-acid batteries, paper, plastic, tires and used motor oil; Make necessary modifications to their programs to ensure material is recycled to the maximum extent possible; and Report the type and amount of material recycled as well as all products purchased containing recycled-content material each year to the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). The Act [Section 44-96-140 (E)] also sets a goal that at least 25 percent of all product purchases contain recycled-content material. DHEC is required to submit a report on this information to the Governor and General Assembly by November 1 of each year.
