Smyrna Recycling Center Notice

Because of traffic and safety issues, trash and yard waste will NOT be accepted at the Recycling Center after June 30, 2012.

These items will be accepted by Advanced Disposal at their Transfer Station at 4649 South Cobb Drive in Smyrna: Mon. – Fri. 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. / Sat. 7 a.m. - 12 p.m.
There will be a flat fee of $7.00 for 400 lbs or less; $.03/lb for any additional weight.
All vehicles will be weighed in and out unless the scale operator determines that the load is significantly less than 400 lbs.

This change will decrease traffic congestion at the Recycling Center and increase the number of available drop-off hours. Fees for loads over ½ pickup will be reduced.

The telephone number for Advanced Disposal is 770-436-6126.

*The Recycling Center now accepts cooking oil, used motor oil, rechargeable batteries, books, new/used clothing and shoes.*
