WasteZero, a company that provides solid waste reduction programs to municipalities throughout the country, has announced plans to expand its Hemingway, S.C., operations. The company says it expects to invest $3.1 million and add 27 new jobs when the expansion is completed.

Mark Dancy, president of WasteZero, says, “We are excited about the opportunity to expand our operations at our Hemingway plant. South Carolina’s probusiness environment and skilled and dependable workforce has enabled us to grow.”

The expansion will include the addition of 10,000 square feet of manufacturing space at the facility, which serves as the company’s sole manufacturing plant, serving more than 800 municipal customers across the nation. The company says it expects to complete the expansion by the end of the first quarter of 2014.

South Carolina’s Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a rural infrastructure grant of $125,000 for the project. 

WasteZero provides trash metering programs designed to allow municipalities to sharply reduce their residential fees. The company also manufactures customized plastic trash bags for its programs and for other customers in the U.S. from recycled content.
