Start your new year with recycling! This year Keep DeKalb Beautiful (KDB) is
offering DeKalb residents the opportunity to “GO GREEN by RECYCLING” at
the end of the holiday season. They will be hosting a Christmas tree recycling
and electronics recycling event at several locations.


Wesley Chapel Home Depot
4325 New Snapfinger Woods Dr
Decatur (770-981-4553)

Citizens are encouraged to recycle their Christmas trees during our 18th annual “Bring One for the Chipper” event. They will also be able to bring their old electronic items to the Home Depot site for recycling. KDB hopes citizens will “green-up” this winter and begin 2008 with a spirit of environmental stewardship!

While supplies last, all who participate in the recycling effort will receive a free dogwood seedling. Residents who are currently serviced by DeKalb County Sanitation Division may also leave their trees for curbside pick-up.

The following electronics will be accepted: Computer Monitors, Stereos, Microwave Ovens, Computer CPUs, Copiers, Telephones, Laptops, Video Machines, CB Radios, Printers, VCRs, CD Players, Disk Drives, Camcorders, Portable Radios, Floppy Drives, Cameras, Cell Phones, Test & Networking Equipment, Record Players, Keyboards, Modems, Speakers, Scanners, Circuit Boards, Typewriters, Cables, Electrical Panels, Fax Machines, UPS/Battery Back up, Projectors, CD ROMs, Computer Mouse, Televisions (*$10.00 Charge for Televisions).
