Doing our part by recycling right.
Gwinnett Recycles is an organization created by and for the citizens of Gwinnett County, Georgia. Recycling matters, and as the second most populated county in the state of Georgia, we have a big opportunity to help our environment, community, state, and world by making a small extra effort to give the things we use every day a second life.
When you put clean, accepted materials into your curbside recycling bin or other recycling collection point, you’re setting an exciting process into motion. Instead of that metal can or plastic bottle degrading slowly in a crowded landfill, it’s sorted, processed, and transformed into something else that can be used again and again. Along the way, natural resources are conserved, well-paying manufacturing jobs are created, and pollution is prevented.
Great news: You play an important part in making all this happen. Recycling the right way is easy and doesn’t take much time. We’ll show you how to do it — and how to reduce, reuse, and compost your waste too!
Gwinnett Recycles is run and funded 100% independently by passionate volunteers and is not affiliated with any government, organization, or sponsor. If you want to help the cause, consider volunteering with us!
