Gwinnett County invites you to celebrate Earth Day

Please join the Solid Waste Division on Saturday, May 10, 2014, at Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Braves as we celebrate Mother Earth by hosting a free recycling event. This event will feature electronics recycling ($10 cash fee per TV), tire recycling (limit eight tires per vehicle; no dealer tires), and paint collection (limit five one-gallon cans per vehicle; no paint thinners, stains, spackle, oil paint cans, rusted paint cans, or dried-up paint). Please bring your gently used or old sneakers to be donated to those in need or recycled into surfaces for local playgrounds and running tracks. Residents can enjoy free kids’ activities and touch-a-truck, and will have the opportunity to meet their haulers.

Paper shredding will not be provided at this event, however Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful provides free paper shredding Monday Through Friday. For more information, please visit http://www.gwinnettcb.org/.

If you would like to volunteer, please visit http://www.volunteergwinnett.net/ to sign up for this event.


Gwinnett Environmental Sustainability: Living, Working, Growing Green
Efficiency. Reduced impact on our water, air, and Earth. Better buildings and transportation systems. Less waste of energy and precious natural resources.

That's what "environmental sustainability" is all about - and this website is the central online clearinghouse for information about what Gwinnett County is doing - both the government and the community.

When this site is fully developed, you'll find sections on green buildings, land use and greenspace, energy efficiency, water conservation, recycling and waste reduction, and transportation and air quality.

Here you'll learn what you can do - and what your County government is already doing - to set a good example. Living green. Working green. Growing green. Gwinnett County is pulling together to build a more sustainable future for our children and grandchildren.
