COLUMBIA, S.C. – April 21, 2010 – The South Carolina Department of Commerce and the Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation (MBREDC) today announced that Myrtle Beach Recycling Inc. will locate its new operations in Horry County. The $5 million investment is expected to generate 15 new jobs.

“We are pleased to locate our new facility in Horry County and look forward to beginning operations there. South Carolina provides us with an excellent business climate and a top-notch workforce. Horry County also had a building that provided the perfect fit for our company’s needs. We appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials,” said Joe Juliano, owner of Myrtle Beach Recycling.

Myrtle Beach Recycling is a new company that will focus on paper recycling services. Myrtle Beach Recycling is a “green industry” company, helping to reduce the amount of waste that would otherwise go into landfills.

“South Carolina continues to see positive results from enhancements to our state’s business-friendly climate, and Myrtle Beach Recycling’s decision to locate operations here is another sign of how small businesses and innovation benefit when tax and regulatory burdens are low. It is important, now more than ever, that we work to continue to strength the fundamentals that support the growth of small business because start-ups and existing small businesses play a vital role in providing job opportunities for many South Carolinians,” said Joe Taylor, Secretary of Commerce.  “We are pleased to welcome Myrtle Beach Recycling to our state’s business community and wish them much success in their endeavors here.”

“We are delighted to welcome Myrtle Beach Recycling Inc. to the business community. Recycling improves the environment and creates jobs in the process. This is an exciting project and we look forward to working with this company in the future,” said MBREDC Chairman Jimmy Yahnis.

The company plans to begin hiring for the positions in mid-May. Anyone interested in finding out about job opportunities with the company should contact the Coastal Workforce Center at 843-234-9675.
