Top 10 Reasons To Recycle

Citation: NRC – “Top 10 Reasons to Recycle”

The beverage industry’s bottles and cans are among the most recycled consumer packaging in the U.S. We work hard to package our products with materials that are widely accepted in recycling programs and are designed to be recycled with other, similar materials. We also have a commitment to helping with recycling efforts around the country – a commitment we have had for many years. And we are always looking for ways to do more.

The South Carolina Beverage Association partnered with the Carolina Recycling Association in 2011.
