Earth Day 2014 a Success!
Gwinnett County celebrated Earth Day with the Solid Waste and Recovered Materials Division on Saturday, May 10 at Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Braves in Lawrenceville. Residents brought more than 5 tons of electronics, 7.5 tons of tires, 40 household toner cartridges, and 278 pairs of old sneakers. In addition, 800 gallons of paint were donated to Global Paint for Charity and 200 gallons have already been given to the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless to help facelift the walls for the Peachtree Pine Homeless Shelter building. Together, we do great things!

Attendees enjoyed kids’ activities and games, and got a chance to meet their residential haulers. Thanks to Advanced Disposal, Republic Services, Sanitation Solutions, Southern Sanitation, and Waste Pro along with the Gwinnett Braves, ViaTek Solutions, Global Paint for Charity, and LaRaza  102.3FM for their partnership in this exciting event.
