Memorial Day 2015 is not a trash and recycling holiday for unincorporated Gwinnett
Memorial Day is not a trash and recycling holiday for solid waste providers in unincorporated Gwinnett County, so trash and recycling collections are scheduled as normal. The Gwinnett County Solid Waste and Recycling Call Center will be closed that day, but hauler call centers will be open. Residents who live in a city should contact their city to find out if trash and recycling will be delayed due to the holiday.
Celebrate Earth Day at Coolray Field on Saturday, April 18, 2015

Please join the Solid Waste and Recovered Materials Division on Saturday, April 18, 2015, from 9:00am to noon at Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Braves as we celebrate Earth Day by hosting a free recycling event. This event will feature paper shredding (limit five copier paper boxes), electronics recycling ($10 cash fee per TV), tire recycling (limit eight tires per vehicle; no dealer tires), paint collection (limit five one-gallon cans per vehicle; cans must contain 25 percent wet, usable paint; no paint thinners, stains, spackle, oil paint cans, rusted paint cans, or dried-up paint), and toner/printer cartridge collection. 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 will enjoy free kids’ activities and touch-a-truck, and will have the opportunity to meet their haulers.

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.
