The City of Smyrna Recycling Education Center is managed by the City of Smyrna and supported by Keep Smyrna Beautiful. The center serves as a drop-off station for those who don’t have curbside pick-up or have items that are not accepted by their curbside pick-up.

Want to recycle even more plastic? Pick up a Hefty® Energy Bag® Program starter kit at the recycling center. For more information about the program, click here.
