After in April, it's time again for the second round of cleaning before the holidays. The bi-annual Neighborhood Clean-Up and Recycling Day is Saturday, Sept. 29.
The public and citizens of Norcross will have opportunities to get rid of unwanted materials at three different stations: shredding, electronics recycling and non-hazardous materials.
Get rid of paper documents through American Security Shredding, which is back at with its on-site shred truck. Free and open to the public, the truck will have a video display monitor so that everyone can see the materials as it's being shredded.
Because the shredding event tends to be the most popular, the public should take advantage of it early in the day. Once the truck is full, no other documents can be accepted.
"The truck generally fills up before the end of the event," said Philomena Robertson, the code enforcement supervisor for the city of Norcross.
Also offered is the usual service of disposing non-hazardous trash for city residents. The event is free and will take place in the Public Works Barn off Lively Road and Buford Highway.
Lastly, safely recycle cell phones, computers and other electronics through the Atlanta Recycling Solutions. The event is free to the public at the Norcross Community Center, but there is a $10 fee for televisions.
To add a cherry on top to the whole recycling event, donate canned and non-perishable goods to Norcross' local food bank for the 2012 "CAN" Do for Hunger Campaign.
