RECYCLING: While recycling is important to all of us, it does present some challenges. The city of Norcross will not longer be recycling glass. We appreciate your cooperation by no longer placing any type of glass in your green recycling container, please place glass in grey trash container. If you wish to recycle glass, this link will provide a list of recycling centers that still accept glass at this time: http://www.gwinnettcb.org/recycling-center-material/glass-bottles-and-jars/.
