Ins and Outs of Recycling
Contaminants cause the rejection of tons of recyclables every year, which increases the cost of recycling.
The Top Three Contaminants are:
- Plastic grocery bags
- Take-out pizza boxes
Other contaminants include:
- Hard cover books
- Light bulbs
- Cookware (ceramics, plates, cups)
- Window / mirror glass
- Construction debris
Please do not put these in your recycle bin, and remember:
When In Doubt, Throw It Out!
Notice: Waste Management has significantly reduced its field work force in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, effective Monday March 30, Waste Management will be suspending pick-up of bulk, yard waste, and anything outside of the carts until further notice. Pick up of solid waste and recycling carts will continue as normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Yard waste service will be credited on your account by Waste Management for as long as the service is temporarily suspended.
The municipal solid waste hauler, Waste Management, began providing garbage and recycling collection services to Peachtree Corners residential homes on Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
