DCC Metal Recycling announces $11 million facility in Dillon County, to create 78 new jobs

Dillon County, South Carolina – A metal recycling business in South Carolina has announced plans to build a new $11 million facility. The company says the move will bring new life and jobs to the area, boosting the local. In what appears to be a significant boost for Dillon County’s economic landscape, DCC Metal Recycling, a firm with deep roots in the state, announced on Monday its initiative to construct a facility that not only emphasizes environmental sustainability but also aims to bolster the local job market with the creation of 78 new positions.

The new building will be on 48 acres of land at 1324 Smith St. in Dillon. It will be a symbol of the company’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its operations. DCC Metal Recycling specializes in shredding and recycling scrap metals. Their process focuses on materials like copper, aluminum, and stainless steel, which helps make the business more environmentally friendly.

President and CEO of DCC Metal Recycling, Donald R. Brewer Jr., was excited about the company’s move into the Dillon area. “DCC Metal Recycling looks forward to joining the Dillon community,” president and CEO Donald R. Brewer Jr. said in a news release. “Our new operation will be providing excellent job opportunities as well as the purchasing of metal recyclables from area scrap dealers and the general public.

He also talked about how Dillon’s location and the state’s new inland port are strategic advantages that particularly fit the company’s needs. The Dillon plant is the seventh DCC Metal Recycling plant in South Carolina. The company’s main office is in Hemingway, Williamsburg County. Operations are anticipated to commence in the first quarter of 2025, underscoring the company’s ongoing growth and investment in the state.

Also, the move by DCC Metal Recycling to invest in Dillon County has been warmly welcomed by local leaders. Detrice McCollum Dawkins, chairwoman of the County Council, said she was thankful and hopeful about the future.

“Dillon County is thrilled to welcome DCC Metal Recycling to the growing and impressive list of partners in our industrial family,” County Council Chairwoman Detrice McCollum Dawkins said. ” DCC Metal Recycling has a history of doing business in South Carolina and rural area communities. We are grateful your company recognizes the value of conducting business in Dillon County and we look forward to a long, prosperous relationship.”
