To prevent against identity theft, bring your sensitive documents for secure shredding to the Sandy Springs Recycling Center. Documents will be placed in secure bins that are locked 24/7 inside our office. Our vendor arrives once a week (on Thursdays) with a shredding truck to shred the documents on-site. All paper is recycled.
We charge $0.50 per pound of documents for shredding.
You can pay by cash, check, or credit card during our operating hours. Please make sure you only have paper documents for shredding. We do not accept any plastic film, binder clips, or cardboard in our secure document shredding bins.
We host an annual drive-thru event called Shred Fest that is open to anyone--you do not need to be a Sandy Springs resident. Our last Shred Fest was April 17, 2021. Did you miss it? Keep your eyes on our News & Events page as next spring comes for the next one !
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.
