Important Notice! Recycling in Norcross

Important Notice!

Weekly Curbside Residential Recycling Collection Begins Week of June 4, 2018

Dear Valued Norcross Resident;

Effective the week of June 4, 2018, Advanced Disposal will provide curbside recycling collection on a weekly basis at residential households in the City of Norcross. The City encourages participation in the recycling program as it provides many benefits for our environment including:

1. Reduce the amount of material that is landfills

2. Conserves natural resources such as timber, water and minerals

3. Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials

In an effort to maximize the results of our recycling efforts, please read and follow the below guidelines:

Acceptable Curbside Recycling Items:

  • Cardboard
  • Plastics-water bottles, soda bottles, detergent bottles, milk jugs
  • Aluminum (soda) cans
  • Packing paper (no wax)
  • Mixed paper (newspaper, magazine, shredded paper, printer & copy paper, loose-leaf paper, notebook paper)

Unacceptable Curbside Recycling Items:

Glass                                                  Juice Boxes

Batteries                                             Medical Waste

Food Waste                                        Napkins/Paper Towels
