Recycling Options - Update
Posted on Nov 24th, 2015

First, Custom Disposal, our local neighborhood garage collection company offers curbside recycling. With this option, you receive stackable bins, or rolling carts, your choice, for your recyclables.  The recycling trucks comes to the community every other week on your regular garbage collection day.  You can read more about the materials accepted for recycling here.
 
If, like me you want to recycle even more stuff there's the City of Smyrna Recycling Center.  They've recently moved to a newer, bigger center at 3475 Lake Drive, Smyrna Ga 30082.  It's less than 10 minutes away from the One Ivy Walk Community.  The Smyrna Recycling Center is an awesome place which takes lots of different materials.  In addition to the things that Custom Disposal takes the Smyrna Recycling Center will take anti-freeze, motor oil, cooking oil, vehicle batteries (lead acid), rechargeable batteries, cell phones, Christmas lights, all types of electronics like PCs, printers, TVs etc.  (TVs require a $20 fee and computer monitors cost $10)  They will take appliances like washers, dryers, stoves, etc. fluorescent bulbs both CFL and regular tubes. They will even take your old American flag and dispose of it in the proper ceremonial method which the VFW describes.  This isn't a complete list by any means.  Be sure to check out their site for the complete list.  You'll be surprised, there are many more things that can be recycled with just a little bit of effort.
 
Note, neither of our recycling options will take Styrofoam containers.  Fortunately, many local grocery stores will take food quality containers like meat trays, take out food trays and cups.  So there you go, with just a little bit of work you can significantly reduce the amount of garbage you send to the landfill every week.
