Decatur Electronics Recycling Day

by Joseph M

Do you have any old electronic items sitting around at home gathering dust because you aren’t sure about the best way to dispose of them?  Check out Decatur Recycling Day, a biannual event taking place this Saturday, October 29 in the Decatur High School parking lot from 9am to 1pm.  Almost anything with an electrical cord can be recycled at no cost, including cell phones, computer components, cameras, DVD players, batteries and more.  Television sets can also be recycled for a charge of $10 cash.  In a change from previous years, styrofoam will no longer be accepted.  For more information, including a list of acceptable items, please visit this link on the City of Decatur website.

electronicsrecyclinglogo_2251If you forgot about the Decatur Electronics Recycling Day, there’s no need to worry–due to bad weather over the weekend, the event was rescheduled for late April.  Recycling Day is held outdoors, and the weekend weather presented a safety hazard for volunteers.

Electronics Recycling Day has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2009 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Decatur High School parking lot.  Visit www.decaturga.com for a list of electronic items that may be recycled and more details about the event. You may also call 404-377-5571 for information.
