Mission Statement: The Richland County Solid Waste Authority’s goal is to reduce the volume of waste that is placed in our local landfill and to promote the theme “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” for the many items we use in our daily lives.
Education: It has been said for many generations that the youth of today are the future of tomorrow. We at RCSWMA believe this to be an incontrovertible truth. We also believe that education of today’s youth will be the saving or our planet tomorrow.. That being said, we have developed many education programs that help teachers (public, private, and individuals) educate today’s youth to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle in as many positive ways we can find.
