Electronics recycling event planned

POSTED: April 18, 2012 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.

Keep Dawson County Beautiful Chair Karen Armstrong said the event is an excellent opportunity to discard electronics in a safe and efficient manner.

"All hard drives in computers are shredded at Atlanta Recycling Solutions' warehouse the same day as pick up," Armstrong said.

A $5 donation per car or truckload will benefit Keep Dawson County Beautiful. A $10 removal fee applies for televisions. No console TVs will be accepted.

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."

For more information, call (678) 943-0516.
