Gwinnett recycling center to close by end of April

Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful will cease operations at The Recycling Bank of Gwinnett by the end of April. The closure of the recycling center at 4300 Satellite Boulevard in Duluth is due in large part to residents and most businesses having access to curbside recycling programs or on-site recycling collection through a variety of private sector haulers.

“The closure of the Recycling Bank speaks to the awesome impact our recycling education and engagement efforts have had on our citizens,” GCB Chairman Bartow Morgan said. “Due to the efficiencies in newer operations, the Recycling Bank of Gwinnett is simply no longer needed by the public at large like it was when it first opened in 1986.”

Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful will continue its education and environmental programs and will launch a recycling app with a list of recyclable materials accepted curbside, locations that accept recyclables that cannot be left at the curb and alerts about upcoming community recycling events. GCB also plans to host recycling events, and present more educational content on its website about proper ways to recycle, alternative solutions to non-recyclable materials and a list of manufacturers that utilize recycled materials.
