Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful, in Partnership with Gwinnett County and West Rock Offers Hefty® EnergyBag® Program
Beginning October 15, Gwinnett County will participate in the Hefty® EnergyBag® program to give residents an opportunity to dispose of hard-to-recycle plastics in a sustainable way.
The Hefty® EnergyBag® program complements current curbside recycling programs in both unincorporated and incorporated Gwinnett. This program helps residents recycle plastics not part of the list of acceptable items such as #4 through #7 plastics, plastic bags and wraps, foam, plastic dinnerware, and many other plastic items.
Gwinnett residents can drop off their full Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags at West Rock located at 384 Maltbie Street in Lawrenceville Monday through Saturday from 7:00am to 2:00pm. Only Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags will be accepted at this site.
Like plastics placed at the curbside, items placed in an orange bag should be clean and dry, with no food or liquid. Plastics #1 and #2 — which include items like water and soda bottles, milk jugs, juice containers, and detergent bottles — will continue to be accepted curbside. Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags are available for purchase at Kroger stores and online.
Who can participate? All Gwinnett County residents, including those who live in apartments.

Can I put the Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bag in my curbside recycling container? Not at this time. You can take the Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bag to the drop off location at West Rock located at 384 Maltbie Street in Lawrenceville Monday through Saturday from 7:00am to 2:00pm.
