CONYERS – Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) is hosting its annual Electronics Recycling & Paper Shredding event for Rockdale residents and business owners, Saturday, Sept. 10, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., in the parking lot of the Rockdale County Government Annex, 1400 Parker Road.
The free event will provide the public a place to safely discard and recycle old documents and electronics, regardless of working condition.
There is a maximum of four banker boxes per vehicle allowed for paper shredding, and as a new element this year due to high demand, participants must provide photo ID as proof of an address in the Rockdale County for both shredding and recycling. Professional electronics recycling and paper shredding companies will securely handle all items on site under the supervision of government staff.
Cash fees will apply to certain items for electronics recycling, including $20 each for TVs and $10 each for CRT monitors. All other electronics are free to recycle. The following is a list of items accepted/not accepted at the event.
