Facts about recycling in Walton County:
In 2016, Walton County collected 1,477 tons of recyclable materials (1,093 tons from recycling trailers and its cardboard bailing operation, and 384 tons from the landfill program). Walton County currently collects recyclables in three ways:

Ways you can get involved:
First, simply recycle at your home and business. Curb-side pick-up is available TODAY through the private local businesses listed above, so THERE ARE NO EXCUSES to not recycle in your home and business. If you can’t afford one of the local curb-side pick-up services, free drop-off recycling stations are already available near you.
If you already recycle at home and want to do even more, please join our 30A Recycling group on Facebook. We’re a group of local volunteers who share ideas about how we can improve as a community. You can also email us for updates about the initiative. We always welcome volunteers and people to head-up committees, so please email us if you’d like to help! Our current committees include:
– Beach Recycling

– Adopt-a-Recycling-Trailer Program
– Curbside Recycling
– Rental Companies and Large Resort Communities
The 30A Company is firmly committed to making a difference. We recently launched our new Dumpster Diver clothing line, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. Every shirt saves about 8 plastic bottles from a landfill in the southeast. We also banned disposable water bottles from our 30A offices, and we sell a line of reusable drink containers in our stores. Additionally, we founded the 30A Recycling group to help promote new initiatives that will benefit our community and protect our precious natural resources.
