Recycling continues at other locations

LAWRENCEVILLE - Recycling in Gwinnett will continue despite a fire last week that temporarily closed the county's recycling bank in Duluth.

Connie Wiggins, the executive director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, is urging residents and businesses alike to keep recycling despite the county loss.

"Citizens and businesses have several alternative locations during the temporary closure," Wiggins said in a statement. "Alternative locations can easily be found on the Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Web site at www.gwinnettcb.org."

For residents who receive curbside service, all operations will continue as usual. For residents who would like to take their items to alternate locations, they only need click on 'recycling' on the Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Web site. From there they are directed to numerous locations available throughout the county depending on what needs recycling and where they live.

For the most common plastic and bottled goods, those numbered one to seven, SP Recycling in Lawrenceville, American Paper Recycling in Tucker and Lawrenceville and the Snellville Recycling Center are the places to visit. There are also numerous schools, fire houses and postal centers listed for common items such as aluminum, newspapers and magazines.
