So, I recall the City Manager mentioning this at the conclusion of the last Decatur City Commission meeting, but I never posted anything. Thanks to Nubbs for reminding me with her FFAF comment! Here are the details from the city’s website…
Don’t throw away that old cell phone, camera or PC component! Save it and recycle it on Saturday, March 19, 2011 at Decatur’s Electronics Recycling event. This semi-annual event has been hugely successful at diverting electronic equipment from landfills, where they may contaminate soil and water. Batteries will be accepted.
TV’s will be recycled for a minimal fee of $10 cash only per TV set with exact change. There is no charge to recycle other items.
The event takes place Saturday, March 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Decatur High School Parking lot, on the corner of N. McDonough St. and W. Howard Avenue. Electronics dropped off that day will be sorted and disassembled into raw materials or cleaned for re use.
In addition to electronics, any metro area resident can also drop off batteries of any type.
