Recycling & Waste Reduction

Athens-Clarke County Recycling Division
Our mission is to educate the public about the importance of waste reduction to the Athens-Clarke County community and implement a comprehensive, waste reduction plan that will reduce landfill disposal of solid waste as follows:
  • 40% by 2015
  • 60% by 2018
  • 75% by 2020
The Mayor and Commission approved the Waste Diversion Goals on November 3, 2010.
