Keep Golden Isles Beautiful has partnered with TerraCycle to offer cigarette waste recycling options

to our local community. Already on board with the program are Maggie Mae's Restaurant, Cast Aways

Lounge, King and Prince Seafood, and many Keep Golden Isles Beautiful Adopt-A Program groups. With

cigarette butts the number one littered item, there now is an easy and free way to recycle the butts

collected from roadways, as well as cigarette waste generated at home and work.

To prepare the Keep Golden Isles Beautiful Off-Site Recycle Trailer, it was given an extreme makeover

- with recycled paint - by Keep Golden Isles Beautiful staff. When you reserve this trailer, included are up to four

rolling carts and up to 90 folding metal bins. The carts take up the front section of the trailer and are attached near

the colorful rectangle so they do not move in transport. When you make your reservation, please consider how

many trash cans will be at your event... that is the number of recycle bins we suggest that you reserve.

We want to help make recycling at your next event EASY and FUN!

Off-Site Recycle Trailer

This is the Keep Golden Isles Beautiful Recycle Trailer with an assembled bin.

The trailer holds up to four rolling carts and up to 90 folding metal bins.


Brent N. of Pull for a Kid Tug-of-War set up one recycling bin next to his trash can

at an event, saving 48 pounds of recycling from reaching the landfill.



WHY do my neighbors have

a recycle bin and I don't?

BECAUSE you haven't ordered one yet!


If a homeowner pays for waste removal at a residence,

the homeowner is already paying for a recycle bin!

  Where can my business take office supplies such as printer cartridges,

             toner, old computers, etc. to be recycled?

                       Some stores that sell office supplies will also recycle printer cartridges and

                       toner.  For further information, businesses may contact Lowes, Office Depot,

                       Staples or The Home Depot.


                       To recycle large quantities of used electronics (computers, copy machines,

                       etc.), please call us at 912.279.1490; or donate your used electronics to

                       a non-profit agency. 

           Are there recycling services that will shred sensitive materials?

                       Yes, Record Services, Inc. in Brunswick will shred sensitive materials.  

                       You can contact Record Services, Inc. at 912.280.9868.  They are located

                       at 2121 Coast Street.

                       There are also companies outside our immediate area that will shred and

                       recycle sensitive materials.  Depending on the volume, they may also pickup

                       your materials.


          What is my role as a business to recycle?

                         As a business, it is up to you to recycle as much as you can in a way that is cost

                         efficient to you.  It is important for businesses to create an environment that

                         encourages their workers to become enthusiastic about recycling.  Setting

                         standards for employee recycling and creating easily accessible recycling areas

                         on your premises greatly improves the chances of success for your recycling program.

                         A business should look at a recycling provider as a partner and understand the

                         limitations of the recycling service.  By working together to create a recycling plan

                         appropriate for you needs, the business and service provider can come to an

                         arrangement that is both easily managed and cost-efficient.


                         Keep Golden Isles Beautiful offers assistance to businesses regarding individualized

                         recycling plan development and best practices.  Our staff is happy to talk with a

                         representative from your company over the phone, at our offices or at your business.

                         For more information, please contact Keep Golden Isles Beautiful.
