From the Acworth Parks and Recreation Department:
The City of Acworth Parks and Recreation Department invites the community to participate in our next Computer, Electronics and Metal Recycling Day at the Acworth Sports Complex off of South Main Street. This event occurs twice a year, on a Saturday, during May and November from 8:00 a.m., to 5:00 p.m. The next Recycling Day will take place on Saturday, November 3.
The city along with Federal Recyclers wants you to Think Green! If it’s made of metal or you can plug it in, they can recycle it. Don’t let those items you have collected end up in the landfill. Old barbeque grills, lawn mowers, metal patio furniture, car parts, old bicycles, gutters, metal siding, metal fencing, exercise equipment can all be recycled.
All metal and electronics recycling is free, except for a $15 fee for computer monitors and a $20 fee for televisions.
New this year: Federal Recyclers will now be accepting paint for recycling. They have a recycling fee of $2 for pints or gallon cans and a $7 charge for 5 gallon cans. Please leave labels on paint cans because some paints are hazardous waste and need to be separated for controlled recycling.
