We’re moving, but not yet

The HTC Towne Centre location will be moving just down the road in the coming months.

The location at the end of Carolina Forest Boulevard was sold to South Atlantic Bank earlier this year. HTC will remain in the area, moving about a mile down the road to the Lowes Foods shopping center on International Drive.

The location will offer the same services as Town Centre, along with Apple products and security systems.

Look for more news when the move is finalized.

“Conservation is a priority at HTC and we are committed to working towards a sustainable future. Conservation isn’t part of our work – it’s a guiding influence for all of our work,” said Tom Vitt, HTC Director of Marketing.  “The Green Fair is a means to support conservation beyond HTC and into the communities we serve by encouraging recycling and promoting green initiatives that are easy to implement in any home or office. 

“The Green Fair will provide residents an opportunity to recycle items, shred sensitive documents, and have fun while making an environmental impact.” 

If you are unable to attend the Green Fair, HTC encourages everyone to please be responsible and recycle directories and other items at the nearest Horry County Solid Waste Authority Recycling Center location.  A list of recycling centers is provided in the preliminary pages of the HTC Directory or online at www.solidwasteauthority.org.

Here are more details regarding HTC green initiatives: 

Paperless Billing: Save a stamp. Save a check. Save time.

HTC encourages members to migrate from paper bills to electronic bills.  Paperless statements are convenient and clutter-free. Although HTC customers have been able to manage and view bills online for many years now, HTC is encouraging customers to go completely paperless by paying their bills using bank draft.  This saves customers stamps and time.    Members are a click away from savings at HTC My Account on www.htcinc.net.

Some of the benefits of paperless billing include:

  • Receive monthly email notification when statements are available for online viewing.
  • View, download or print the same information online 24/7 that’s on a paper statement.
  • View old statements – up to 18 months – free of charge.
  • Help the environment by cutting down on paper.
  • Reduce mail and paper clutter at home.

Some of the benefits of automatic bank draft include: 

  • Save time with no more writing checks, buying stamps, etc.
  • Safe, secure and confidential.

Waste Recycling Bins Company-Wide

HTC encourages employees to be environmentally responsible by placing recycling bins throughout the organization for paper and plastic waste. 

Energy Conservation

Employees are encouraged to take the stairs instead of using the elevator to conserve energy. Employees are also conservative with energy by turning off lights and powering down computers when not in use. 

Green Plus Certification

HTC was awarded Certification in the Green Plus program for its high standard of sustainability initiatives. Developed by the Institute for Sustainability Development, the Green Plus program is a nationwide network of businesses that have challenged themselves to achieve the best environmental practices and have dedicated themselves to being a sustainable business. The Certification is earned through a diagnostic evaluation assessing the business’s sustainability efforts across three platforms: People, Planet and Performance.
