Recycling

Recycling benefits communities. By transforming products into something new and supporting the closed loop system, we prevent pollution that occurs when resources like trees and precious metals are extracted from the earth. Recycling saves energy, conserves natural resources, and avoids landfills. It also stimulates our local economy. Did you know that Georgia has the second largest infrastructure for recycling manufacturing in the country? More than 120 business rely on recycled materials for their products.

In 2018, our network of affiliates recovered 19.5 million pounds of recyclable materials to support our manufacturers. View our resources to learn more, and visit our recycling markets directory or your local affiliate to learn more about how you can participate in your community.
