Republic Services’ trash and recycling customers in unincorporated Gwinnett County can expect uninterrupted, on-schedule trash collection, but due to the significant impact that a spike in COVID-19 infections is having on Republic’s workforce, recycling services will be suspended until their workforce begins to normalize. Bulky items and yard waste pickup are also suspended temporarily. On-schedule trash collection remains a top priority.

During this temporary service interruption, Republic Services customers in Gwinnett County may take their recycling, bulky items or household trash to a drop-off site at one of the following locations:

  • Recyclable Materials Only – 75 Curtis Road, Lawrenceville, GA (6:00am – 6:00pm)
  • Household Trash/Bulky Items – 51 Patrick Mill Road SW, Winder, GA (Monday-Friday, 6:00am – 4:00pm; Saturday 6:00am – noon)
  • Household Trash/Bulky Items – Richland Creek Landfill, 5691 S Richland Creek Road, Buford, GA (Monday-Friday, 6:00am – 4:00pm; Saturday 6:00am – noon)
  • Household Trash/Bulky Items – Oak Grove Landfill, 937 Carl Bethlehem Road, Winder, GA (Monday-Friday, 6:00am – 4:00pm; Saturday 6:00am – noon)


Republic Services provided the following message to its Gwinnett customers: We apologize for the inconvenience this temporary service interruption is causing residents. Like many industries all over the country, we are trying to manage a severe manpower shortage. The COVID Omicron variant continues to hit our operations hard; we currently have approximately 20 percent of our Gwinnett workforce on quarantine. There will continue to be temporary service disruptions for recycling, bulky materials and yard waste in the coming days. We ask for and appreciate your patience as we work to get past these issues.
