No. The intent of the ordinance is to provide a collection system and education resulting in a successful recycling program. Every business and non-profit in Athens-Clarke County must make a concerted effort to recycle the items listed on the Recyclable Items Poster: mixed paper, cardboard, plastic bottles & containers, metal cans and glass bottles & jars. We do not expect you to correct customer or staff errors in recycling but they should have access to recycling. However, you should take note and offer additional education if it seems to be a continual problem. The Commercial Recycling Specialist is available to assist you with any problems you encounter with improper recycling.
