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 of South Main Street.
This event occurs twice a year, on a Saturday, during May and November from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Acworth's next Recycling Day will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2.
If it’s made of metal or you can plug it in, then Federal Recyclers can recycle it. Items such as old barbeque grills, lawn mowers, metal patio furniture, car parts, old bicycles, gutters, metal siding, metal fencing and 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.
Federal Recyclers will also paint for recycling. There will be a recycling 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.
