Three sites already in Norcross, Sugar Hill

(Lawrenceville, Ga., Jan. 19, 2024) – Gwinnett County and Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, in partnership with Ripple Glass, have added 10 new glass recycling locations across the county.

Gwinnett’s glass recycling program provides residents with the opportunity to drop off glass for safe and sustainable recycling.

“One of our strategic priorities is to promote sustainability and stewardship, and the expansion of our glass recycling program aligns with that priority,” said Gwinnett County Chairwoman Nicole Love Hendrickson. “We listened to our residents and have more than doubled the number of glass recycling drop-off sites in the county — allowing community members to take an active role in our work collective vision for a more sustainable Gwinnett.”

Look for the purple glass recycling containers at the following locations:

  • Bogan Park in Buford
  • Duncan Creek Park, Harbins Park (baseball entrance) and Rabbit Hill Park (football entrance) in Dacula
  • Bethesda Park and Collins Hill Aquatic Center in Lawrenceville
  • Lucky Shoals Park in Norcross
  • Lenora Park (football entrance) in Snellville
  • Mountain Park Aquatic Center in Stone Mountain
  • Peachtree Ridge Park in Suwanee

 The new locations join three prior glass recycling sites at E.E. Robinson Park in Sugar Hill, One Stop Norcross and Pinckneyville Park in Norcross.

“Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful is very fortunate to partner with Ripple Glass to provide glass recycling drop-off locations and services to Gwinnett County residents,” said Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Executive Director Schelly Marlatt. “The recent expansion of drop-off sites will make it easier for residents to recycle their glass bottles and jars. Glass can be recycled over and over again and the addition of these locations will divert them from our landfills and give them new life.”

Gwinnett residents can drop off their emptied and rinsed glass jars and bottles of any color at any of the 13 locations. Labels can remain on the glass.

“We are thrilled to partner with Gwinnett County to expand glass recycling options for residents,” said Ripple Glass Senior Vice President of Sustainability and Corporate Affairs Laura Hennemann. “The demand for recycled glass in Georgia for fiberglass insulation and glass container manufacturers is incredibly strong. We need more glass from residents to support local jobs, businesses and the environment.”
