Help the Environment by Recycling

Recycling is a series of activities that includes collecting recyclable materials that would otherwise be considered waste, sorting and processing recyclables into raw materials such as fibers, and manufacturing raw materials into new products.

Recycling can be a fun family activity. It not only conserves our landfill space but it also teaches our children to respect and preserve their environment.

Sugar Hill Sanitation & Recycling

Effective November 1, 2009, the City of Sugar Hill in partnership with Advanced Disposal is expanding our curbside recycling services to include 32 recyclable items.

We are no longer able to accept glass in the curbside recycling program due to changes in market demand for cullet and cost associated with processing. We appreciate the community’s understanding of this industry-wide change and urge continued participation in minimizing the waste stream to the greatest extent practical.

Please be aware, if any glass is found in your recycling container, Advanced Disposal will not pick-up any recycling items within the container.

Where to Recycle Glass Bottles and Jars

Please visit the Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful website for a list of recycling centers that will still accept glass:

Very Important:

All garbage and recycling containers must not be placed at the curb or roadside any earlier than the evening before the scheduled collection and they must be removed from the curb or roadside no later than the day after collection has occurred.
