SC's Recycling Incentives

Recycling companies in South Carolina may be eligible for some statutory incentives provided the business meets investment requirements outlined in state law. There may also be additional incentives available to recycling companies to offset other South Carolina taxes such as sales and property tax.

• Jobs Tax Credits may be available by creating a monthly average of 10 net new jobs in a South Carolina recycling company where processing or manufacturing of scrap tires is involved.

• Sales tax exemptions on equipment purchases such as balers and shredders are available for various types of recycling companies including collectors, haulers and processors.

• Worker training may be available through readySC valued at $2,500-$9,500 per person trained depending on the complexity of business training needs.
