2023 SC Recycling Day at the Statehouse

2023 Recycling Day at the SC Statehouse

February 21, 2023

The Palmetto Club
Columbia, SC

Recycling day at the SC Statehouse was a huge success, with a record 75 members and friends of CRA gathered for inspiring presentations delivered by leaders in SC’s recycling profession, followed by a networking reception with over 60 members of the South Carolina State General Assembly at the Palmetto Club in Columbia.  Recycling day provided a unique opportunity to meet with South Carolina law makers one-on-one. Businesses, industry players, non-profits, and individuals got valuable facetime with their representatives to help advocate for a healthy recycling industry in South Carolina.
