The city of Norcross will hold its "Neighborhood Clean-Up and Recycling Day" on Sept. 28.
This is one of the city's two annual clean-up days.
In addition to cleaning the neighborhood, the event also will help stock the shelves of the Norcross Cooperative Ministry.
Last spring, more than "300 people showed up to recycle and we’re hoping at least that many show up again this fall," said Philomena Robertson, a code enforcer and organizer of the recycling event.
There were 9,000 pounds of paper shredded, 5,800 pounds of electronics collected, and record amounts of canned food and non-perishable items donated, she added.
