Earth Day Recycling Event

Date & Time
Location Venue: Gwinnett County Fairgrounds

Address: 2450 Sugarloaf Pkwy Lawrenceville, GA 30045



Join us at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 5th in celebration of Earth Day with two of the best ways we know how… volunteering and recycling! On this day dedicated to demonstrating support for environmental protection for the last 47 years, we will unite with a global community of 193 countries that celebrate Earth Day in their own variety of ways to show our love for the planet we call “home.”


Thanks to our partners at Gwinnett County Fiscal and Solid Waste Management Division, this paper shredding event is entirely FREE to the public. With Spring in full swing, it will be a great time to do a little Spring cleaning and get rid of those sensitive documents by securely shredding them in bulk at no charge (five box limit)! In keeping with Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful’s pledge to promote sustainability, the shredded paper will then be recycled for use in producing toilet paper, paper towels and more!


We expect to shred thousands of pounds of paper in just three hours, so in order to make this event a major success, we’ll need volunteers to help greet our neighbors, haul boxes of paper to the shredder and more.  To volunteer for Earth Day at Gwinnett Fairgrounds, please register at  Thank you in advance for the gifts of your time and talents!
