Recycling Updates

Plant Operations Director John Gadson and Custodial Superintendent Walter Dudley met in mid-December with the General Manager of Advanced Disposal, Mr. Jon Hipp.  We toured campus and discussed the options available to Georgia College for curbside collection of waste and recycling.  The advantages of moving to curbside collection include less handling of materials, thus making it easier for student/staff/faculty volunteers to deposit recyclable materials anytime day or night, and right next to their office or residence hall.

GC disposal bins- Main campus. Green dots are roll-off bins, Gold triangles are 1 cubic yd. bins, and Red squares are 9 cub. yd. front loader bins.


Also, Mr. Hipp confirmed that because of the Material Recovery Facility in operation at Attaway Recycling, we no longer have to sort materials into separate bags.  All recycling (mixed paper, newspaper, plastics #1 & #2, aluminum and steel cans) can be bagged together.  We will begin switching the blue bins over to a new configuration shortly.
