    Candler County Public Works operates the Candler County Landfill and Recycling Center. Curbside residential and commercial waste is picked up by the County and deposited at the landfill. Recyclables are separated from the waste stream and diverted to the Recycling Center.

    New residents can arrange for curbside waste pickup through the Candler County Tax Assessor’s Office. Curbside pickup is included in Candler County property taxes.

    The Recycling Center is also open to residents for free drop off of newspaper, glass, aluminum, motor oil, batteries, and other recyclables. The Recycling Center cannot take paint and other hazardous materials. Please call 912-685-9579 to check acceptability if you have a question about your recyclable materials. Old tires are accepted for a fee.
