Get your Reusable Recycling "Green" Bag! 

We like recycling loose, not bagged. These reusable totes keep your recycling loose and can be used to take your recycling to any of our community drop-off sites or your on-site recycling dumpster. You can pick one up at our Administrative Office at 725 Hancock Industrial Way, Monday-Friday 8 AM - 5 PM. They are also available at the CHaRM and Landfill. If you live in an apartment complex, check with your leasing office first.  

Why recycle?

  • Reduces the amount of waste sent to our landfill.
  • Conserves natural resources such as timber, water and minerals.
  • Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials.
  • Helps create jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in Georgia and across the United States.
