Gwinnett is expanding its glass recycling program with the opening of a third drop-off glass recycling location at E.E. Robinson Park. This is the third location offered through the County’s glass recycling program, which has already diverted 102 tons of mixed glass from landfills at existing sites at OneStop Norcross and Pinckneyville Park in Peachtree Corners.
“The expansion of the glass recycling program speaks to its success and our priority to cultivate a safe, livable and healthy community for our residents,” said District 1 Commissioner Kirkland Carden.
Residents can drop off their clean, empty glass containers at E.E. Robinson Park, located at 885 Level Creek Road in Sugar Hill. The clearly marked drop-off container is accessible from sunrise until 11:00pm unless posted otherwise.
Glass dropped off at any of the County’s glass recycling locations will be taken to Strategic Materials, Inc., a large glass recycler in the Atlanta area.
Acceptable glass items include clear and colored food and beverage bottles and jars. Frequently asked questions about glass recycling can be found at GCSolidWaste.com and GwinnettCB.org/Programs/Glass-Recycling.
