The DeKalb County Sanitation Division recently launched its Senior Center Recycling Program in partnership with the Lou Walker Senior Center, 2538 Panola Road, Lithonia.

The partnership is part of a targeted recycling program that offers recycling at the county’s six senior centers. The program allows seniors to sign up for recycling services at any affiliated senior center.

DeKalb County is working to increase recycling in the county to 60 percent—or 105,000 households by 2020. The May 19 launch at the Lou Walker Senior Center is designed to encourage members of DeKalb’s senior centers to make recycling part of their everyday routines.

In March, the Sanitation Division also implemented a customized school recycling program in partnership with the DeKalb County School District and plans to expand the program to higher education institutions by the end of the year.

For more information on the single-stream recycling program, contact Anastasia Martin, communications and recycling outreach coordinator, at 404-294-2281 or
