If you live in the City of Brunswick and have a bright blue recycling bin with a light blue lid, here is the 2019 City recycling pick up schedule and here is what is and is not accepted. If you live in Glynn County and have a blue recycling bin or a bright blue recycling bin with a light blue lid, here is the 2019 County recycling pick up schedule and info. More detailed City/County curbside recycling program info can be found here.
BUSINESS RECYCLING is available via both Waste Management and Republic Services. Condo associations, apartment complexes, hotels/motels, non-profit organizations, churches and all types of businesses can receive business recycling services for a monthly fee.

Many items not accepted in local curbside recycling CAN be recycled in our area. To give a better understanding of “what can be recycled where” in the Golden Isles, Keep Golden Isles Beautiful has created a RECYCLE GRID that can be downloaded HERE. This handy resource details where to locally recycle “hard to recycle” items.
Keep Golden Isles Beautiful has also begun a NON-TRADITIONAL RECYCLING PROGRAM in which certain hard to recycle items can be dropped off to our offices for recycling via TerraCycle.
