Recycling Services

For our residential customers, we use a process called ‘single-stream’ recycling where you do not have to sort any of your recyclable items. All of your clean recyclables go into a single container and are then separated later at our sorting facility. From there, the various separated materials get sold to recycling processors that turn your recyclable items into raw materials to be reused by manufacturers.

We also offer the The Hefty® EnergyBag® Program which is a new way to divert hard-to-recycle plastics from landfills and to convert them into a valuable resource.  Recycling customers who live in Cobb County, collect plastics that are not currently recycled and place them in the Hefty® EnergyBag® orange bags. The bags are put out in the recycling cart, on the regular recycling route day.  The orange bags are then sorted at the recycling center separately then the other normal recycling items.  See the link for more specific information regarding hard to recycle items that go into the Hefty Bag.

Our recycling service is not just for residences only. We are always ready to come up with a recycling plan for your business that fits your needs and saves you money. Whether we are taking your industrial scraps, or shredding and recycling your office paper, Trash Taxi is committed to keeping as much reusable material out of the landfill as possible.

With Trash Taxi, it’s easier to Go Green than ever before!
