Despite that market drawback, the City of Greer Re- cycling Center finished the year with a record tonnage of recyclable materials collected at the center on Buncombe St. The center experienced a slight drop in paper and plas- tic, but saw strong increases in cardboard and metal. Total tonnage increased more than 10 tons over 2015. More than 20.3 tons of e-waste (electronics that are no longer permitted in county landfills) was collected at the center in 2016. The City’s Spring Clean Up Day, held the last Saturday in April, permits residents to drop off materials not collected curbside. The 2016 event drew 285 residents with aerosols, pesticides, batteries, furniture, lawnmowers and other items. Paint again was the leading material dropped off as work- ers collected four 55-gallon barrels. Workers shredded 3,580 pounds of papers at the event.
