GRR-Harleyville is located adjacent to Giant Cement on 60 acres of a 1700-acre site north of the town of Harleyville, SC. GRR processes both liquid and solid hazardous and non-hazardous materials into waste-derived fuel. The fuel is then burned by Giant Cement in the production of Portland cement in its rotary kiln. Giant is also able to feed certain liquid waste fuels direct-feed from a tanker to the kiln.
GRR-Harleyvile has the distinction of operating the most successful cement kiln in recycling alternate fuels since the program started under BIF in 1992. It is one of only two cement plants in the US that is permitted to store and utilize bulk solid hazardous waste fuels. In 2005, the facility completed a $130 million expansion which furthered its ability to efficiently and effectively handle these materials.

Examples of wastes that are suitable for GRR’s resource recovery program include solvents, waste oil, and coolants, as well as shredded and crushable solids. GRR can receive materials in tankers, roll-offs, end dumps, and rail cars.

Additionally, some companies may also offer consultation and sustainability services. It is best to check with your local waste company for a complete list of services they provide.

What happens if I need additional services?

Suppose you require additional services, such as an extra garbage pickup or special disposal for hazardous materials. In that case, it is best to contact the waste company directly to discuss options. Many waste companies are willing to accommodate special requests, but there may be additional fees associated with the extra services.

What are common types of waste facilities?

Common waste facilities include landfills, composting centers, and incineration plants. Landfills are the most common waste facility, where trash is buried and then covered with soil. Composting centers process organic materials, including food scraps, yard trimmings, and agricultural wastes, into a nutrient-rich fertilizer for the soil. Incineration plants burn solid waste such as paper, plastic, and other non-toxic materials, which can reduce the volume of trash by up to 90%. Depending on the location, some waste companies may also offer specialized services like hazardous material disposal or medical waste treatment.

Do all waste companies offer recycling?

Most waste companies offer some recycling service, although the types of materials accepted and the collection methods may vary. Many waste companies also offer a special program for electronics or hazardous materials that must be disposed of safely. It is best to check with your local waste company for more information on what types of services are available.

What is the most sustainable way to manage my waste?

The most sustainable way to manage waste is by reducing, reusing, and recycling. Reduce the waste you produce by avoiding single-use items and investing in more durable goods. Reuse items whenever possible, such as donating unwanted clothing or furniture instead of throwing them away. Finally, recycle any items that cannot be reused, such as paper and plastic. Additionally, composting organic material can help reduce the amount of waste going to landfills.
