ASK THE EXPERTS

Electronic recycling event is Saturday

POSTED: April 16, 2014 4:00 a.m.

Keep Dawson County Beautiful's annual electronics recycling event is this weekend.

Volunteers will be in the Dawsonville Walmart parking lot from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday to help unload personal computers, printers, monitors, stereo equipment, radios, telephones, circuit boards and fax machines, among other items.

Last year, the group collected more than 4,000 pounds of electronics that will be recycled and not deposited into local landfills.

"This brings our total to 33,000 pounds in a course of five years," said Karen Armstrong, the volunteer group's chairwoman. "This progress brings our community one step closer to a cleaner environment for our children."

Keep Dawson County Beautiful Executive Director Kristi Hudson said the event is an excellent opportunity to discard electronics in a safe and efficient manner.

"Hard drives are destroyed and shredded at the warehouse. You can rest easy knowing that your business and personal information will be securely and permanently removed from your hard drive," she said.

A $20 removal fee applies for televisions. No console TVs will be accepted. There is also a $5 fee for computer monitors.

Keep Dawson County Beautiful is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Keep Georgia Beautiful.

The organization's mission is to "encourage citizens to take greater responsibility in the beautification of Dawson County."

A $5 donation per car or truckload will benefit Keep Dawson County Beautiful.
