Learn what items we do (and don't) accept at our recycling facility. Remember: part of an easy and efficient green plan is to sort your recyclables before you come. You'll be more inclined to recycle, in and out lickity-split, and your neighbors will be spared from waiting in line to get in to our facility
Household Items/Other Items
Document shredding is available each day. Documents are stored in a locked bin inside a locked office in our building. Once per week, a shredding truck picks up the bins and shreds the documents on site. ($0.50 per pound)
The following items contain hazardous materials and require a fee in order to properly recycle. We accept these items from residents of the City of Sandy Springs ONLY.
Items with a fee should be dropped off during operating hours.
We accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards.
If your items are usable, try giving them away at Freecycle, Lifecycle Building Center, or ReStore. If your items are not usable, and you are a Sandy Springs or check out the items that CHaRM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) takes in Atlanta, GA. Also, check with your contracted waste hauler to see if they take any of these items. If you are not a resident of Johns Creek or Sandy Springs, check with your local county or city for recommendations.
