Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. held a luncheon today to mark the opening of Forsyth County’s newest recycling facility, located at 5680 Shirlee Industrial Way.  The company’s $5 million facility will provide a much needed service to Forsyth County and the surrounding greater Atlanta area. 

“We are extremely proud of our newest recycling facility and the commitment we’ve made to provide the citizens and businesses of Forsyth County with a cleaner, more efficient recycling solution,” said Charlie Gray, Advanced Disposal Regional Vice President. “This single-stream facility will process between seven and 12 tons of material per hour, which makes it one of the largest facilities in the region.” 

This is Advanced Disposal’s tenth material recycling facility and brings 44 direct jobs to the county. The facility is currently processing about 100 tons of recyclables per day mainly collected from Advanced Disposal’s current contracts with local cities and counties along with subscription routes.
