Viva Recycling to open new facility in South Carolina

Friday, August 22, 2014

Greenville, SC - The Greenville News reports, "Viva Recycling of South Carolina, a tire recycling company and rubber manufacturer, said Tuesday it will put a new facility in Anderson County. The $6.9 million investment is expected to create 14 new jobs over the next five years. Established in 2011 and headquartered in Moncks Corner, Viva Recycling processes scrap tires to produce environmentally responsible recycled rubber products for home, business and recreation. The tires are collected from a variety of sources throughout the Southeast, including cars, light and heavy trucks, landfills, municipalities and tire retailers. The company separates the scrap tires and other selected industrial rubber scrap into their component parts — rubber, steel and fiber. While the steel and fiber are recycled, the rubber is sized, shaped, colored and molded into a wide range of sustainable products for various industrial, commercial and residential applications, company officials said. “We are proud to build Viva’s second South Carolina facility in Anderson, providing the Upstate with a true recycling option for scrap tire recycling, as we have successfully done in Berkeley County, where we already turn over four million scrap tires into useful consumer and other valuable products,” said Marty Sergi, president and CEO of Viva Recycling of South Carolina LLC. Viva Recycling products include landscape mulch, playground safety flooring, artificial field in-fill, rubber sidewalks, rubber pavers, equestrian flooring and rubberized asphalt. The company’s new facility, at 3520 Abbeville Highway in Anderson, is expected to be in operation by December. Viva Recycling of South Carolina will start hiring for new positions in September." - * Email
