To provide a comprehensive recycling experience, the City of Greer has partnered with ACE Environmental Inc. to provide a convenient recycling location for the Greater Greer Area. The facility, located at the former site of the city’s Public Services Department, is staffed six days weekly by ACE Environmental employees who are ready to assist recyclers.
"The economics of this are very simple. We needed to create a recycling program that was not only affordable, but also one that could be provided at no cost to the taxpayers of our community," City Administrator Ed Driggers said.
"What you see operating on this site will bear no cost - direct or indirect - to the citizens of our community. It will enable us to reduce waste into landfills, reducing costs that we have as far as tipping fees. It also provides a financial incentive to the contractor to be successful on this site."
Public - Private Partnership
The public-private partnership and size of the operation is unique to the Upstate.
"ACE Environmental certainly appreciates the opportunity to partner with the City of Greer to provide this program to the community and the surrounding area," ACE owner Mike Phillips said. "We will make it successful. We'll do everything we can to make it convenient and easy for folks to drop off their recyclables."
