In 2016, Anderson County was the only county in South Carolina to reach SCDHEC's 40% recycling rate goal.  Not only did Anderson County reach the goal but we surpassed the goal with a 42% recycling rate!  Anderson County Solid Waste and Keep Anderson County Beautiful would like to thank our residents and businesses for making it possible to achieve this remarkable accomplishment.   Because of your recycling, you have made our home a better place to live, work and play!!
