PRESS RELEASE

CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA (April 24, 2024) – Single-stream recycling service at the Blalock Road facility of the Cherokee County Recycling Center will be interrupted for a little more than a week as improvements are made to help mitigate future service interruptions due to an increase in residents recycling.

The Blalock Road facility will not accept single-stream recyclables from April 26 to May 7 to allow crews to install an additional compactor. Due to work that needs to be completed, the existing compactor will not be operational.

The facility will remain open to accept glass and aluminum cans (bagged separately), as well as fee-based items including bagged trash, metal, paint and mattresses.

Work is underway at the Hobgood Park facility with the second compactor expected to be installed Monday. It will become operational when the striping and new entrance are complete at the facility. An update on operations will be posted to the Cherokee County Recycling Facebook page.

“We appreciate your patience as we work to bring more resources to our facilities that will help lessen service interruptions in the future,” said Recycling Center Manager Troy Brazie. “We are excited that more people in our community are recycling, and we are working to bring better service for you. We have been informing our Blalock Road customers as they visit the facility this week, and we are planning to be back up and running at full capacity by Wednesday, May 8.”

For any notifications or service updates, please make sure to follow the Cherokee County Recycling Center on Facebook.
