Electronics, Paper Shredding, & Styrofoam Recycling Days, March 17 and 31!

New Location for Spring Electronics Recycling Day 2012!
Saturday, March 17, 2012 from 9 AM – 1 PM

NEW LOCATION!: Decatur Public Works, 2635 Talley Street
*Enter on Talley St. from Columbia Drive — see website map!
**Please note, styrofoam will no longer be collected at Decatur’s Electronics Recycling Day. This material will be accepted at the new Paper Shredding and Styrofoam Recycling Event on March 31st from 9 AM – 1 PM (see below)

Don’t throw away that old cell phone, camera, or PC component! Save it and recycle it at Decatur’s free Electronics Recycling event. This event has been hugely successful at diverting electronic equipment from landfills, where they may contaminate soil and water.

The next event takes place Saturday, March 17th from 9 AM to 1 PM at the Decatur Public Works located at 2635 Talley Street. Electronics dropped off that day will be sorted and disassembled into raw materials or cleaned for re-use.

Recyclables must be dropped off during the hours of the event. Early drop-offs are not possible. Almost anything with an electrical cord can be recycled except microwave ovens. A list of acceptable items and map are available at:

TVs will be recycled for a minimal fee of $10 cash only per TV set with exact change. There is no charge to recycle other items. Any metro area resident can participate.

The City of Decatur is hosting its first Paper Shredding and Styrofoam Collection Event on Saturday, March 31st from 9am-1pm. There is no cost for participation. This is a great opportunity to get rid of that bulky styrofoam you’ve been saving and ensure that your important personal documents are disposed of properly. AAA Security Shredding, Inc., provides secure on-site document shredding, and all shredded documents will be 100 percent recycled. Most document types are acceptable.

Paper shredding and Styrofoam recycling guidelines and map are available at http://www.decaturga.com/index.aspx?page=638.

For additional information on either of these events, please contact Sean Woodson, Decatur Solid Waste Superintendent, at 678-898-8562 or Sean.woodson@decaturga.com
