Electronics Recycling Day This Saturday Oct. 20th

From The Decatur Minute:

See full guidelines for recyclable items at
Public works will recycle just about any electronics equipment you have in your attic, basement, closet or office. See for a list, and for answers to frequently asked questions. Recycle your Styrofoam as well and safely shred and recycle your sensitive documents all in one place. It’s simple and convenient. Just drive through and drop off your recyclables 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (Sorry, early drop-offs are not possible.)

Paper shredding
AAA Security Shredding provides secure on-site document shredding, and all shredded documents will be 100 percent recycled. These items cannot be shredded: Cardboard, glass, plastic, magazines, napkins, newspapers, paper cups and plates, plastic or spiralbound notebooks, phonebooks, binders, and trash.
Styrofoam recycling
  • Make sure foam has the “6” symbol on it
  • Rinse and separate food service containers from other foam
  • No straws, lids, tape or stickers
  • No foam peanuts or insulation material

NOTE: Fee required to recycle cathode ray tube equipment (exact change only): Monitors $5; TVs $10
Since we started in 2005, we’ve diverted more than 1,000,000 pounds of electronics from landfills. Contact Sean Woodson, 404-377-5571, or for more information and last-minute updates, or visit
