The City of Acworth Parks and Recreation Department invites the community to participate in its next Computer, Electronics and Metal Recycling Day at the Acworth Sports Complex off South Main Street. This event occurs twice a year, on a Saturday, during May and November from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The next Recycling Day takes place Saturday, Nov. 2.
If it’s made of metal or you can plug it in, it can be recycled at this event, says a press release from the department. "Don’t let those items you have collected while spring cleaning 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, but there is a $15 fee for computer monitors and a $20 fee for televisions.
Federal Recyclers will also accept paint for recycling for a fee of $2 for pints or gallon cans and a $7 charge for 5 gallon cans. Leave labels on paint cans because some paints are hazardous waste and need to be separated for controlled recycling.
A-1 Shredding will be on site offering document shredding at $5 per box.
