The Roswell Recycling Center has been at the heart of the city's recycling efforts for the past three decades. What started as a grassroots initiative organized by a group of citizens has grown into an environmental force in the community, offering recycling services to both residents and non-residents. 

The Center provides recycling for a wide variety of materials - from everyday items such as plastic, paper, metal and glass to larger items including appliances, tires, batteries, cell phones, printer cartridges, electronics, televisions, motor oil and antifreeze.

For a full list of recyclable items, see the Recycling Center Brochure.
