BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C.- (Monday, October 21, 2019) — RePower South (RPS), has started accepting recyclables from Charleston County, after an intergovernmental agreement was reached last week between Berkeley and Charleston Counties. RePower South is a recycling facility in Berkeley County that extracts the recyclable material and pays the County to landfill the residual. RPS pays the County a lease to operate on the County landfill as well as a revenue share of the sale of the recyclable material and fuel. RPS began processing Berkeley County waste in April 2019.

Under the agreement, Charleston County will pay Berkeley County $37.88 per ton of feedstock, or acceptable segregated recyclable materials, delivered by Charleston County to the waste facility. Charleston County has agreed to deliver, at its own cost, a minimum of 2000 tons of feedstock to RePower South each month. Additionally, under the agreement, all residual waste from Charleston County will be disposed of at a facility outside of Berkeley County.

The agreement was reached on October 17, 2019, between Berkeley County and Charleston County.
