NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The North Myrtle Beach Public Works Department is working to implement a strong recycling presence in its city. They placed recycling roll carts at many oceanfront street ends in the city.

They say the bins are placed on street ends where a sanitation recycling truck can easily gain access to the roll carts.

Anyone coming off the beach can drop newspapers, magazines, glass, aluminum and steel cans, cardboard, paperboard, plastic containers and plastic bottles in the recycling roll carts.

Placement of the street end containers is the first of many steps the city hopes will become a larger program with recycling containers eventually placed on the beach itself.

North Myrtle Beach has applied for a state recycling grant to help fund the purchase of specialized equipment necessary for recycling collection on the beach.

Recycled material is delivered to the Horry County Solid Waste Authority's Material Recovery Facility for processing.
