Get ready to shred, dump and donate those unwanted materials in your home: Neighborhood Clean-up and Recycling Day is hitting Norcross this Saturday, April 7.
Recycling day, which occurs twice a year, will start as early as 8 a.m. at various locations around town with volunteers in tow.
This time around the event includes a whole laundry list of items, so there's no excuse why you shouldn't get rid of junk lying around the house.
Here are some of the major ones, but check out the city's code enforcement page for specifics on what will/won't be accepted:
- Old cell phones, computers, keyboards and televisions will be accepted at the electronics recycling center at the at 10 College Street from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Basic clean up on anything that's not a hazardous material will be open to city of Norcross residents at the Public Works Barn, located at 345 Lively near Buford Highway from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- New this year is the city's ReCycle Bicycle collection, in conjunction with Sustainable Norcross. Patrons can swing by 168 Wingo Street to donate bikes, bike parts and accessories. Items will be used to refurbish bikes into usable transportation for students, according to a statement from the city.
- American Security Shredding wil have an on-site shred truck at city hall and will be broadcasting the tearing excitement on a video monitor. The shredding will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until the truck is full.
- Donate canned and non-perishables for the local food bank at the Norcross Cooperative Ministry for the 2012 "CAN" Do for Hunger Campaign.
