Recycling Guidelines

Hey Builders!

The Green Team would like to thank all of you for your great efforts in recycling and keeping SC beautiful. Remember that it is so important for our environment to not only recycle but to also reduce the amount of waste we produce. Also, please remember that we need to be organized when we collect our recyclable materials.
