Join us Saturday, May 10, at our monthly Old Fourth Ward recycling event.
Although part of Irwin Street will be closed to thru traffic due to the Sweet Auburn Festival, we will be holding our monthly recycling event.
Please inform the officer on duty that you are a recycler and you will be permitted to proceed to our location.
Bring old electronics, #6 styrofoam, paper for shredding* or recycling, latex paint, single stream recycling (cardboard, tin/aluminum cans, paper, plastics 1-7, glass), metals, and textiles** to recycle from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Fees apply on some items. Visit our Community Recycling page for more information, directions, and accepted items.
$1 Donation Request
We are committed to providing this valuable resource to our communities. As costs rise, we are asking residents to help us defer some of those costs with a small donation of at least $1 when they drop off their items. Thank you for your continued support of our efforts in the community.
*Paper shredding prices have changed. Beginning in May, the first box/container (approx. size of file box) is free, and each additional box will be $3.00.
**Textile recycling added in May. See our Community Recycling page for more information.
