Recycling Changes for 2018

Recycling pickup is a free service for all sanitation customers of Dacula. The City is making changes to our recycling service. Major differences are that recycling pickup will be on a bi-weekly Friday schedule beginning on June 8, 2018 and container sizes. Each customer will be receiving a letter about this the week of May 21, 2018. A copy of that letter is below. Please note that GLASS of any sort is no longer a recycled material. Please dispose of glass waste in your regular garbage.

Re:       2018 Changes to Recycling

On May 3, 2018, Dacula’s Mayor and City Council voted unanimously to contract with Republic Services for recycling pickup in the City of Dacula.


The following are changes to the current recycling service:

  • Recycling service will now take place biweekly beginning on Friday, June 8, 2018. Therefore, your last regularly scheduled recycling pickup will be May 25, 2018.  A full calendar of recycling service for 2018 is listed below.
  • Each home is allowed one (1) recycling bin free of charge. If you do not have a bin or if you have multiple smaller bins, (i.e. 18 or 37 gallons) please contact City Hall to exchange them for the 95-gallon bin, free of charge.
  • All recycling must be placed at the end of your driveway or in the approved area near your curb prior to 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning. If your recycling is not out before 7:00 a.m. biweekly beginning June 8, 2018, it will not be picked up.
  • On the back of this memo is a detailed list of items accepted for recycling. Please do not place unacceptable items in your recycling bin.  Also, please do not “bag” your recycling with plastic or garbage bags.  If Republic Services deem your items unacceptable, all excluded waste could remain in your bin and the disposal would become your responsibility.
