Did you know that we are an American Kidney Services drop-off location? Together we achieve both our missions--helping those suffering from kidney-related illness pay expensive medical bills and encouraging landfill diversion through reuse! An AKS truck is onsite at our Sandy Springs Recycling Center to collect your gently used clothing and small household goods. The items are then sold by AKS turning your T-shirt a into a medical bill payment.
Ready to donate? Make sure your item is clean and in very good condition, then place all soft items (clothing, linens, drapes) in a bag and tie it off. Place all small household items as well as shoes and belts in a box, then seal it. Place it on the back of our AKS truck (not the ground please) and we'll stack it just right for transport.
Donated items need to be packed in a very specific way. Watch and learn.
The Sandy Springs Recycling Center is CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC on WEDNESDAYS
Wednesday is our processing day. Volunteers, vendors, and Community Service Workers are welcome on Wednesdays; however, we are closed to the public
PLASTIC BAGS NO LONGER ACCEPTED Return bags, films, and wraps to retailers for recycling. Plan to carry a reusable bag with you whenever you shop to reduce single-use plastic bags
Please see our News & Events page for details on both of these decisions.
