New glass company in Horry County could save money for solid waste authority

Officials with the Horry County Solid Waste Authority hope that they can save some money annually in e-waste processing fees and are looking foward to finding a more permanent site for recycled glass once the details of the glass company that is proposed for the Cool Springs Business Park are worked out.

Executive director of the solid waste authority Danny Knight says Horry County Council Chairman Mark Lazarus has recieved a verbal commitment from Dlubak Glass owner Dave Dlubak, to open a 10,000 square-foot facility in the business park.

Currently, the County grinds glass to makes it about the size of the tip of a little finger, then mixes it with sand and sells it for landscaping, like what was recently done Greenville County where it was being used in building a trail.
