Solid Waste Collection Sites/Recycling Centers to Operate on Limited Schedule Beginning March 20

All Oconee County solid waste collection sites/recycling centers will operate on a limited schedule beginning Friday, March 20.  The sites will be open for self service on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to  2 p.m. In order to limit contact between sanitation personnel and the public, attendant assistance and Pay-As-You-Throw bag sales will be unavailable at these locations. You can still purchase PAYT bags at retail locations (grocery stores and convenience stores).

Please do not leave trash or other items outside the gate when the sites are closed. Also, make sure to dispose of your items in the proper bins.  Please do not mix trash with the recycling!

In order to maintain enough storage space for everyone, we ask that you limit your use to disposal of normal household items only.

We are monitoring the situation, and hope to resume our regular schedule beginning Friday, April 3. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

All sites are closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All sites are fenced and lighted with attendants present.
